I fell asleep late into the evening last night waiting to see the results of the election and awoke to see that Obama had won. Though he may not have been my candidate of choice - he is now our new President and History will forever remember this moment.
It took 40 years from Martin Luther King's speech to finally have an African-American lead our country and that by itself is monumental. I am excited for my children and countless others all over the world who see what has happened and embrace President Elect Obama.
My hope is that we can move past politics, taxes and anger and move on to a better place where we begin to focus on being truly Americans - unified by our common purpose and stronger through our diversity.
Congratulations President Elect Obama - well done.
