Happy Days Are Here Again

At 11pm Eastern time, I learned that Barack Obama had been elected 44th president of the United States.

For the first time in eight years, I have hope that things will get better in this country and that we'll regain the respect of the rest of the world..

I have to admit that as the historic moment swept over me, I felt a little misty. I felt as aware of the historical significance of this election as we did when Neil Armstrong first landed on the moon.

I'm a bit speechless at the moment, but very happy. Feel free to share your thoughts below.

I feel the same as you do. I do hope that he delivers, I really do. :)
