We now have a new president. One which I feel that I can support without fear. One which I feel that if I needed to talk to him, I could and he would listen.
Today I voted for the first time in 8 years. I voted for Gore and he lost – the last election I didn’t feel that I vote would matter, so I abstained from casting it. This time, I realized that my vote does matter and it needed to be heard. I voted today for a new government, one of hope and change. One which will listen to me, one which will be willing to accept help from all of America, not just the rich and wealthy America.
Today is a historic day – one where the diverse American public spoke out and told the government (and the world) that they are not going to take it any longer. One that sent a loud message by electing the first african american president to the United States of America. For the first time in years, I feel that I can make a difference. I feel that I will be heard.
Yes, I realize that there is a long way to go, but the mark has been made, and people should take notice. The coming months will show that not only the American people have spoken, but that the world is pleased with our choice. The World will begin to change along with us, and we can begin to repair the damage that has been caused – the damage that caused towers to fall 7 years ago.
Once again, I congratulate Barack Hussein Obama for becoming our 44th President, and also for becoming the first african-american president. You have a huge task before you, and you have millions of Americans behind you, willing to help you in this task. Do not forget about us and we will not forget about you.
Congratulations America – you have spoken.
