Even though I couldn’t vote it makes me so incredibly happy to see that Obama won the US election.
I just finished watching his acceptance speech, and I’m not ashamed to say that I had tears in my eyes. This is just the beginning of the change that the US has needed. I only hope that the pride and belief that Obama has filled the nation’s heart with will sustain it through the really tough times ahead.
I also have to say that I was also happily surprised to see that Colorado voted Democratic. I never thought it would and it just shows me that perceptions and people can change and make a difference.
