I am not American…but I am a part of North America and from the moment Mike came home from work he had us tune into the American election so that he could watch the new President of the United States of America unfold. I have to say I was really bored at first but I feel very priviledged to have watched history being made. I listened to Obama’s victory speech and was brought to tears about what it represented. This win is one for the American people as a whole….this is what America should and is now about. The American dream is that anybody can become anything with effort and hard work and I was brought to tears as I watched Barack Obama accept the challenge of becoming the first african american President of the United States of America. History.
I am so sad that Obama’s grandmother passed away just a few days prior to him becoming the next president elect….I wish that she could have seen him standing up there, an african american man, a strong man, accepting the call to be the next President….the grandson she worked so hard to raise in a manner that was good and right….I wish she could have seen him. It is historic and while many do not agree with his politics I hope that all agree with the importance and signficance of this win. It is a great and marvelous history……truly.
