Today is a win for the entire world

At this moment I am at a loss for words. Barack Obama won the election. It was amazing, it was awe-inspiring, and it was game-changing.

Today is not just a win for America, it is a major win for the entire world.

A pledge for $150 Billion in money for Research and Development into Alternative Fuels over the next 10 years... a radical change to Health Care in America... there are so, so, so, so many good things coming.

A nation so divided over the past 8 years can finally come together and solve problems together. This is absolutely amazing.

Barack's acceptance speech was a quiet thank-you to all of the people who worked hard for him and his campaign... and a warning that we need to buckle down and all work hard, together, and continue our newfound hope and excitement for the future.

It took 44 Presidents to finally elect an African American, and now here we are. A nation where the President was chosen in a clear landslide... as Dr. King so famously said, "judged not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character." This is a proud and monumental day in American and world history. I am so excited and proud to live here in the USA at such an important and pivotal time.


Congratulations, America. You all made the right choice.
