It's Official...

It's official! Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is the 23rd President of the Republic of Liberia, and the first woman in Africa elected as Head of State. All Hail, Liberia, Hail!

I was in a taxi in the middle of town and a traffic jam as the ceremony took place at the Centennial Pavilion. We cheered as we listened to it live on the radio and watched people on both sides of the street dancing and rejoicing for blocks and blocks. A beautiful and uplifting experience.

I am at home now, and still dancing.
