Last night Kamala Harris was speaking about those who helped shape her in her formative years. Along with her family she gave a huge shout-out to my “Alpha Kappa Alpha” sisters and the “Divine Nine”.

I’ve don’t think I’ve ever heard such a powerful and passionate voice publicly give credit to their Greek membership. It’s really quite wonderful given all the negative press we’re currently receiving.

AKA sisters donating $19.08 to the Biden-Harris campaign, as Alpha Kappa Alpha was founded in 1908. There have been over 11,000 donations of that amount.

I was dancing in my Great Room to Martha and the Vandellas while watching the celebrations. Does that count?

BTW...the celebrations were world-wide, not just coast to coast. My friend (ex-pat) in Madrid said people were playing music and dancing on their balconies, friends in France and Switzerland (US natives) said they were breaking out the champagne, several Irish towns were popping champagn bottles in honor of Biden's Irish heritage and I had several sisters in Canada very excited that "America has re-entered the world".

I haven't heard from my friend in Seoul and Florence yet but I know part of Itally is on lock-down again but mostly in the Milan to the French border region.

It was quite an emotional day.

It's reductive to say "I feel proud to be American again" but it's how I feel. And I feel inspired to be more devoted to my party.

I'm very uneasy about the current situation. Trump has six GOP justices on the Court, three appointed by him, and at least two, Thomas and Alito, who I might join the Trump appointees in stealing this election.

Maher, on Friday had a great descriptor for what he thought Trump would do, i.e., "Gus" the election, which is a reference to a movie in which a football team had a mule as their kicker because the rulebooks had nothing about mules as kickers in them. In other words, if norms aren't codified, just because we have certain traditions of peacefully transferring power, this President won't be inclined to follow them.

Gus is my new favorite word.
