It was announced today with much anticipation that Barack Obama would become the next President of the United States. It really didn’t hit me much before until I heard the commentaries and the excitement in the last week of the race. This is the first time in history that someone other than a white anglosaxon becomes President of the United States. And I truly believe that Obama is the best person to introduce this historical change.
Upon hearing the results, you could literally see a difference in happiness and excitement among citizens and non citizens alike of the win. Aside from the fact that almost everyone is just thankful to see Bush go, people were jumping for joy out of happiness as if Obama’s genuinity and humble beginnings are the start to a new era. Even the turnout in Chicago to celebrate the win was astounding with over 100,000 people dancing and listening intently to the Victory Speech (video / text) as he covered all aspects of his future prospects and gave US citizens and Foreign Nations comfort and hope of what they could expect.
“If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer”.
YES WE CAN!!!
Congratulations to Everyone! Let’s hope and pray that our expectations and hopes will be realized through this new phase in History.
