As I am sure many of you did, I spent last night watching CNN. Watching the results pour in. It was surreal. I will tell you; I voted for Barack Obama. Even though I was quite sure that he would be elected, seeing the states reporting votes just made me realize that it was happening.

We, as Americans, made history last night. You may not have voted for Barack Obama and that's ok with me. That's a freedom that we all enjoy. Every single one of us is allowed to think how we want to.

I feel like this is the beginning of big changes in America. Not just with our government. But, with the people of this country. Some huge barriers have come down no matter how you look at it or feel about it. For the first time in a long time, I truly have hope for our future. For my kids' future. For the country they will inherit from my generation. I hope that she is strong and united.

It is time for that change. It's time for us to stop saying no you can't and start saying yes you can.

I'm sure you figured I voted for McCain. But, if Obama can get this new generation to pull up their pants (literally and figuratively), then I'll support him.

I too voted for Obama cause you know he reminds me so much of Pres JFK and I so loved him!!!
Obama is for change, we all need it, we are all ready for it. I pray he can do the job, it's a mess right now and he needs time, so any that doubt him, please give him the time he need to heal and mend our country

I was glued to the TV last night as well, flipping from one channel to the next to the next.

History was made - no doubt about it!

Amen sister!!! Did you see my post on Obama? That was a tough night for me since Grandpa died the same day but as I reflect on 11/4/08, it's overwhelming how much has changed in our country!
