All day, I waited for 6 p.m.--the closing of the polls in Indiana--to arrive. All day, it was a weird almost-mantra: watch Indiana. If Indiana wavers, stays purple or shades blue, things might just turn out okay. My family has been in Indiana for a quarter century. On election days, our state closes first and is declared first, almost without fail.
Tonight, Indiana is still uncalled, even though one candidate has conceded and the other has begun to take charge with sobriety and grace. Things might just turn out okay.
Yes, we did. And yes, we will.
