America, our America! Words cannot express this momentous occasion in our lives. I hope you agree with me that today is a great day to be a proud American. Barak Obama, our first Black President, this is truly a day to remember. I am excited for so many reasons. For all Americans I feel it is an opportunity for us to truly begin to undo the injustices of the past and build a brighter future. For Black Americans, I feel this is our moment to truly believe in the power of change. A stronger black community, a united black community, better families, better education, a better life, a better financial future, we can all make these things possible not by Obama, but with Obama. We are the change we seek in America; you are the change that you seek in your life. This is our moment to be the American Dream.

2:35 PM

Barack Obama is the president elect! My husband and I drank way too much champagne and then went to an old bottle of wine; my daughter tibbled on sparkling cider. We danced, we hugged, we sobbed, we danced and we drank some more.

I went out on our balcony and screamed, “AWHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Obama! Obama!”

My daughter went out on our balcony and screamed, “AWHOOOOOOOOOOOO! I’m cold!”

Our living room looks like a wrecking scene, but Lamour is taking off today and I’ll let him handle that problem. As for me, at the dawn of a new day, a new era, and a new hope; I’m still sobbing because of pride and elation of being black, an African American woman, and with more pride for our country pulling together for unity’s sake.
