My feelings today, on this important day in our countries history~ By Michelle Mammini-Savage
Its hard to say all that I feel today. I feel elated, hopeful, vindicated and ecstatic. I feel Proud to be an American! Ive always been proud of that, but I feel it more so today... I feel this pride coursing through my veins, invading my heart and uplifting my soul.
For Barack Obama will be our 44th President. I voted for this man, I supported this man and I congratulated this man when he won this historic election. I voted for myself, for your children, for my children and for our country. I voted for a man who will make mistakes, but he will learn from them and not make them again. I voted for the man who was and is committed to making this country better, stronger, and once again a nation not divided, but joined for a common good. We will not always agree but we can talk, compromise and if necessary, agree to disagree. Much like we do in "real life."
I know that many in this country have yet to be convinced of this man's worthiness, his resolve and his abilities... I implore ALL of you... Please give him a chance to prove himself. Give him the support he needs and an open mind and heart to see the good he wants to accomplish, and will accomplish if he follows through. And I feel he will... he has already done so much; made plans, made overtures, made allowances, made good.
I am so hopeful today. What a beautiful day, a day for the history books. The first Black man as President of our great country. A man of dreams, of hopes, and of action. Regardless of whether you voted for him or not, please welcome this new and exciting time of our lifetime into your lives, your heart and your minds. We can do it. We just did.
Congratulations to our 44th President of the United States of America... Barack Obama!
