we did it!!!

i am incredibly proud of my country right now. i am awed that we broke from old racial biases to elect the first african american. i am happy that united states citizens, who suffered through the pre-civil rights years and the hard fought days of change in places like selma, were able to cast their votes for obama. i am astounded that voter turn out was so high especially among what has historically been the apathetic youth. i am elated that we finally had enough of the republicans and sent a clear message to the world via a landslide. it has been a long eight years but we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. i am optimistic of america's future. i know times are difficult and there is much work to do but i believe that we can accomplish anything we set our minds on. barack obama is not perfect and there will be things that we will disagree with him on but now is the time for unity. now is the time to give him a chance to move us forward. i am grateful to see bush go but i am even more thankful that a vapid former beauty queen is not a heart beat away from the presideny. hell yes, we motherfucking did it!! amen.
