Congratulations On Your New President, USA

I am in awe and so excited for the US right now. African-American, Illinois senator, Barack Obama is now the 44th president of the United States of America. I can’t believe that I witnessed this incredible event. Right now at 12:30am I hear fireworks, cheering, music and lots of celebrating going on outside my Brooklyn apartment and it’s wonderful.
I have been living in New York for over eight years and having Obama as president just gives me so much hope and brings back the faith that I lost when Bush was elected TWICE!!!
When I was in Canada almost a year ago, I was listening to the radio and the question was “Is America ready for a female or black president?” Most of the Canadian callers said “NO!” I confess that I agreed with them. I wanted to believe that it could really happen but I felt like the American people weren’t ready for it. But I am happily mistaken.
I am elated by this news and I hope that president Obama will bring hope and inspiration back into the American people.

Congratulations America on your new president!!!
