Change That We Believe In!

November 5, 2008

World, welcome the 44th and the First African-American President of the United States – Barack Obama! 😀

Our world, as we know it today, is a very special place to be in at a time like this. To see history being made right in front of your eyes and to know that however insignificant your part in its making, no amount of words or memories can touch the fact that you are here. And you are here NOW.

    Hell yeah. There’s a lot to feel proud about, even if we’re not Americans. Change is possible.

    USA is viewed as one of the most insulated nations among democracies.. hopefully this will change things. What I felt awed by is the fact that Obama just gave his first speech as the President in Chicago, where Martin Luther King first launched the racial equality campaign, 41 years ago. There was a time when some states, like Virginia and California officially banned entry to Afro-Americans.. and they both voted Democrat this time.

    It’s good to know that literally everyone was sick of Dubyaman as well 😛

    Absolutely!

    From King’s I Have A Dream – I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

    That day is here. 🙂

    Thanks. Coming from you, it does make me feel special here.

    You’re right on the whole idea of being alive right now. It does feel like we’re all on the verge of something big.. the anticipation is so electric.

    It does feel good to know we’re here, now. This is something our kids will be studying. Imagine that!

    I really wonder how Bush got away successfully with two presidential campaigns, considering he has the verbal intelligence of a spoon. No Obamisms, I hope 🙂

    After 8 years America will have a president who won’t be made fun of because he read his book upside down, among other things. Seems like a loooooong time ago.

    And he swept Indiana too, where last time only three districts voted for the democrats out of the many. This is SOMETHING

    Let’s just hope the anticipation paves the way for some really solid administration. Somehow, with this, I’m beginning to hope that India will one day have a revolutionary Prime Minister elected as well! 😀

    And you over-estimate Bush. 😛

    He swept SIX states that hadn’t voted Democrat in God-knows-how-many-years! The man is a Messiah! 🙂

    History for sure.Read his winning speech, gave goosebumps. Very less number of people have this ability to connect to the people directly.. leaving his color..he is one man who reaches our directly..and thats what makes great leaders. Hope he does not feel too overburdened with the expectations.

    Isn’t it amazing? I sit back and I realise, wow, we really and truly did it, WE ELECTED A BLACK PRESIDENT. We are a part of something truly inspiring and memorable. I’m excited!
