President Barack Obama
It feels surreal to type President in front of Barack's name. The long election is finally over. America overwhelmingly chose Obama to lead us. There's the historical significance of this choice but there's also a feeling of hope, possibility, and promise. People were more excited to vote in this election than any other I can remember, whether they were voting for Obama or McCain. It was amazing to watch the crowd at Grant Park and listen to Obama's acceptance speech. It's not going to be an easy road for him. There is a lot to be done before he will be able to move on to his own initiatives. I pray that the American people will be patient and I pray that Barack will surround himself with wise, humble leaders who can help him redirect our nation. These are exciting times and I am happy to say that I am a Barack Obama supporter.
"This is our moment. This is our time- to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids;
to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace;
to reclaim the American Dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth-
that out of many, we are one;
that while we breathe, we hope, and where we are met with cynicism, and doubt, and those who tell us that we can't,
we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people:
Yes we can."
