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 doubts 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.
-President-Elect Barack Obama (Nov 4, 2008)
History was made last night as Barack Obama became the 44th president of the United States of America. After all the struggles and hardships of the Civil Rights Movement, America has elected its first African American president. I wish Martin Luther King was alive today, so he could see what he helped make possible.
Last night was unreal and I can't wait 'til we can finally make our DREAMs come true!
