"this is our time, to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for out 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 of the spirit of a people; yes, we can."
-president elect, barak obama
the champagne flowed, a big roast turkey of thanksgiving was carved and we ate sweet american apple pie in celebration. we screamed and then cheered, some of us cried, and then lit sparklers on the front steps of my home - it was amazingly intense.
i woke up this morning and had a big bowl of hope for breakfast. i feel so full of happiness and restored faith in my countrymen that i almost cannot believe it actually happened.
