Our family we watched Barack Obama’s speech live last night and I had goosebumps the whole time.. not to mention lots of tears :-)
I can imagine this is how many felt when JFK was elected.
For the first time in a long time I really felt something in me I have not felt for a long long time.. HOPE.
Kudos to John MvCain as well for his graceful concession speech- one of the best I have ever heard. Imagine what the reat of the world world see when it hears a speech by a “loser” and sees it can be done without a coup or riots in the street.
Remarkable display of democracy and dare I say it… the American Dream. I am just filled with pride and hope and possibility.
It feels good to look up to United States of America as the leader of the free world again.
If you missed the speech
