Barack Obama has won the race for President of the United States of America.
I’ve been impressed with him since the primaries. Even drove down to my old address to vote for him to hope he got the nomination. Something about him, his message just had always rung true to me. I saw his campaign as actually being of the people, for the people, and by the people. The grassroots effort the organization built was amazing. Even when he won, I got an email from them. I had to share this quote: “We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I’ll be in touch soon about what comes next. “ ….and I can’t wait.
So today is election day and I was able to take little man with me to vote. I felt that this was an important day for him to take part in. We held hands and pushed the button together to vote for change.
Sitting here, thinking about the election. It’s been a strange one. It’s typically cliche to say we’re in historic times, but this time; that statement has meaning.
I’ve never cared enough to vote in the primaries. My usual mode is voting against who I didn’t want — the lesser of two evils. This year is so different. So so so different.
To me, I see hope. I see the potential for change. I see the possibility of this country I live in coming out of it’s sad times. There is a lot to change. There is a lot to fix. And there is one man to take us there.
