Me and my daughter Isis in 1991
I waited up till late last night, and it was looking very good, but I had to go to bed around midnight (northeastern Brazilian time) - I'm running a symposium and had to get up early today. Just as I walked into my daughters' bedroom to say good-morning, I saw that Obama's victory speech was playing on CNN. I started sobbing. And dancing samba. I have never bawled for joy in my life before.
Congratulations to everyone who has fought the good fight, and now let's hope that Obama can bear the tremendous burden of responsibility and expectation we have placed on his shoulders. In my humble opinion (to paraphrase a certain slogan), YES HE CAN!
