History has been made tonight. From now on, every little boy and girl, no matter what the color of their skin will know, he/she can be anything they want to be, even president of the United States of America.
As I saw Rev. Jessie Jackson and the tears ran down his face, I felt that I knew what this means to African Americans. America is even better that I thought and for that I'm deeply touched. In spite of our differences, American looked passed the color of Barack Obama's skin and made him the first African American president.
I can't help but feel that this is historic and I can see in the faces in the crowd both black and white how important this day is to our country. Perhaps in some small way the pain of racism and the ghosts of slavery can find peace at last.
The seed of the Old Confederacy and the once Party of Slavery and the KKK, the Party who stood in the way of the Civil Rights movement and Dr. King, today elects a black man as president.
I can't say that I'm happy, I wanted McCain to win of Course, because I don't agree with Obama's policies and I can't shake this uneasy feeling, I really hope I was wrong............
Then there is Senator John McCain, the patriot and the man I voted for. He should have won! For your service, dedication, and sacrifice to this great country, I thank you with all my heart.
