A New Hope Dawns

Our President Elect:

America, we have come so far. We have seen so much. But there is so much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves -- if our children should live to see the next century; if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what change will they see? What progress will we have made?

This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment. 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 doubt, 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. Thank you, God bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.
Read the rest of his speech, personally, I wept. My heart is filled with a hope I thought had almost died. Obama's acceptance speech

You crazy? Who missed it last night?

Hoping like crazy over here. As I posted about... he wasn't "my guy" when it came to voting, but now you better believe he's "my guy." He's the President Elect of this nation and he gets 100% of my support as of now. Yup. Hoping.

Yeah, I missed it. Honestly, when it comes to politics, I find them interesting, but I'm never really passionate about any one person.

I do think that this will be a good thing, overall.

His speech was AMAZING! I was brought to tears several times. Lets hope and pray that he is a man of his word and that he does all that he said he would.
