Barack Obama, the 44th President

November 5, 2008

yes, we did.

i will never forget this night:
waiting anxiously with my friends,
my family here
watching CNN and Fox at the same time
watching as the country lit up
blue and red
and as the countdown for the Western Seaboard
ticked
down
to
zero
standing up with everyone
eyes glued to the television
and when the words came up on the screen
"Barack Obama Elected President"
i could feel tears in my eyes
and more pride than i had ever known before

we are finally going somewhere.
