This historic time in history means to me that I feel like I can wrap my arms around everyone with love, peace and joy. I am so excited for myself because I feel that I can start a new beginning in my life. The deep-down belief that I had in my guts that the people of America would prevail came true with President-elect Obama. I know that this is a new and wonderful emotional cleansing for us all, and this is why I am so very proud to be an American.
