It’s the day after the day after Election Day.
And, to be honest, it all still feels surreal.
I’ve been uncharacteristically quiet since Election Night—and that’s because I’m still speechless. Anything I say now won’t be different than what most others have already said on the election: “didn’t think I would see it in my lifetime”, “only in America”, “the possibilities are endless”, etc. So, I won’t state the obvious.
What I will say is that it was great to spend that evening in the company of my Darden family.
What I will say is that it is great to know that I’m part of a diverse institution where everyone is valued.
What I will say is that I’m glad that I was in the state of Virginia during this historic election and happy to know that my vote counted.
And finally, what I will say is that I’m blessed to be alive during this season of historic change and I’m looking forward to playing my part in continued progress.
