Today is a very interesting day. Our lives have been consumed with this election and today I feel like there is a pleasant silence. I mean, there are still stories all over the news but there is nothing new that we did not hear last night while we were watching the election coverage. I also feel like people are quiet. For instance here at the office, we talk about politics a lot, so I know what everyone is thinking and I do not feel the need to talk about it with people here. I also think that this is a time for internal reflection since this election has been such a historical time that we are all a part of.

Update: I read a statement made by Yes on 8. "People believe in the institution of marriage," Frank Schubert, co-manager of the Yes on 8 campaign said after declaring victory early Wednesday. "It's one institution that crosses ethnic divides, that crosses partisan divides. ... People have stood up because they care about marriage and they care a great deal."

I don't get it. With almost 50% of marriages ending in divorce how can they really believe in the institution of marriage. And them declaring how proud they are that marriage crosses ethnic and partisan divides is hypocritical. What would be better was if it crossed ALL divides!
