Yes we can, yes we did, yes we will

I am so incredibly happy and relieved that we elected Barack Obama as president. His message of hope, change, and unity are so needed right now. I remember when I first saw him speak at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. I wished then and there that I could vote for him for president instead of the uninspiring choice of John Kerry. I hadn't been that moved by a speech since I heard John F. Kennedy's speeches (replayed since I was too young to remember them live). I think this is an exciting time to be an American.
