The first African-American has become president of the United States. I feel so much hope and optimism for America. We need a change so very badly and I truly believe Barack Obama is the man for the job. He has so many fresh and new ideas and is geared towards change.
Even though we're Canadian, my husband and I feel such an immense feeling of joy and excitement for the future of American. President Barack Obama said last night
"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer."
It sure was an answer to us.
45 years ago it was only a dream. Dreams do come true. Anything is possible. Martin Luther King Jr. would be so proud.
