Barack Obama has been elected to be the next president of the United States of America. I am extremely happy to have witnessed this. I was a part of history the first time I was eligible to vote. I can say that I was apart of history.
I was watching CNN news when the electoral votes were coming in and when Barack won Ohio I knew it was over. The announcement that Barack Obama was predicted to win came in at around 11 O’clock and everyone went crazy. There were tears of excitement and surprise. The whole student body at my school were so excited we poured into the street and had a peaceful rally. Before Barack Obama I would never think that I would see an African-American president.
This is what happens when we work together to achieve the common goal. Barack being the first president of color shows that this nation has taken a huge step forward. It brings hope to young African Americans and will unite the African American community. But, the struggles aren’t over so we have to continue to work together to get what we need. Barack is an inspiration to many people including me, he has been through all the struggles and came out on top.
Now, we are ready for change. I have faith that Barack will steer our country in right direction. But, we have to remember that he is getting the country in the worst condition it has been in since the great depression. This country faces great challenges but, together we can bring change for better.
