I don't usually do this, write from an emotional standpoint but tonight history was made. I have been on the brink of tears for the last few hours, filled with pride.
I witnessed a Change that will affect us not for a moment but for years to come. I have always been an advocate of HOPE, cautiously optimistic that a Change would occur that would allow us to return to a state of truth and dignity. We have now elected a President that is the epitome of class and strength.
President-Elect Obama comes from a background of determination that anyone can be successful if you work hard enough. I appreciate that as a person, a small business owner, a woman and as a person of color but most of all as an American. I have no illusion that the road ahead with be smooth. It will be difficult at best but we will work together.
His campaign was truly grassroots, working class people making themselves heard.
We have spoken.
Our voices will not be quieted.
Opportunity is ours.
¡Sí, Se Puede!
Yes, We Can.
