“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed".

A new day has dawned in the history of all mankind as the four corners of the world responds with jubilation as democratic Barack Obama became the first African American to become president of the United States of America.

This historic moment came after a long and more importantly significant campaign season as it is the first time in history since independence that an African American will grace the seats of the oval office and take reign in the white house.

This is definitely a revolutionary moment:
Obama has triumphed despite the many obstacles that stood in his way. He is the reality of Martin Luther King’s dream; “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “we hold these truth to be self-evident: that all men are created equal”. Barack Obama has become a symbol to so many people who have waited a long time to reap the rewards of their struggles, from all the brave heroes of past generations who have so selfishly fought for the dream that he has made a reality. To all the people of the world of all races whom have suffered through many racial and social injustices. He is a beacon of hope for all mankind as he as proven that you can overcome any feet in life regardless of the color of your skin or how many hurdles you have to cross.

The newly elected president addressed the nation in Chicago where he gave another symbolic speech in which he declared that “if there is anyone who still doubt that dreams can still come through in America," can now have reassured hopes as he is a breathing testament of his own words.

"We’ve come a along way from the old injustices…” are some of the words senator John McCain gave in his post election speech as he congratulates Barack Obama on his victory. This victory has cemented the dreams not only of Martin Luther King but for all who can now live in a nation where they can no longer be judged solely by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

Obama rose from humbles roots from being raised by a single mother to charge forth with vigorous ambitions to win the hearts and votes of many. The charismatic leader has proven the depth of character with a display of strong integrity and morals while he remains true to the fundamental values and visions he believes will bring the change that his country and the world at large needs.

The newly elected president Barack Obama will be sworn in office on January 20th 2009 to officially begin his presidency.

It's really heart warming to have seen such a historic moment of an African American man to be elected President of the United States, along with his Beautiful wife Michelle as First Black Lady! For so many months i've prayed and keep my fingers crossed hoping that they did'nt cheat this election, and that when he is elected President there is no harm to him. It's about time we be given the chance to show that despite the fact that most Americans are racist that a dam black man is capable of leading. Congrats to the Democratic Party and all who played the role in ellecting Obama and the entire Party.... More power the man for doing such a Splendid job!!!!

I cried last night when i heard, i never envision seeing this day come to past.. A Black man in the white house... My heart is so overjoyed, he has broken all the stupid sterotypes and proven that we as a black race can do anything... Now when we say to our kids... u can be anything u want to be, we are talking the truth.... This is a victory for the black race,esp. the men, no longer can people see only pimps, drug dealers, rapper basketballers as the only role they are good at, they can now see a Smart educated Black man running the great America.... God this is such a historic event.... Martain Lurther had the dream and OBAMA is now living it... The only thing that could make this any better is for the Blacks, to become one, stop tearing each other down, stop calling each other niggers and whores... we have our light now and it's OBAMA... This man shows us what it's like to have A good Black woman by his side... she helped build her man, so now we have different role models to look at.... it's ok to find ur equal and build a life, so all the men who just go around and think sleeping with many females is the thing now u see different, find urself a woman that will have ur back through thick and thin and work on ur dreams and u can be all u want to be.... Wow i'm so happy, i can't even explain the joy!!!

all i can say is congrats to Obama and power to the people.i was very emotional when he won the state of iowa because that state only has 2%black and 93%white and he won the damn thing.on a lighter note why was jessie jackson crying a few months a go he said he wanted to cut obamas nuts off.

I got to the polls at 6am and was there for 2 hours as I got a fight from the officials claiming they couldn't find my name. After making a spectacle and getting CNN and my states Secretary of State in on the action, I was able to cast my vote for Obama and be a part of history. As a Black-American, I still can't stop the tears as it is surreal to see and know that my kids and their kids will have endless possibilities. Internationally, everyone is a part of this as well because international influences played a big part. Americans saw how tuned in other countries were and felt how important this election was to the world and not just us. This caused even more people to participate and exercise the right to vote. YES WE CAN & YES WE DID!!! OBAMA 11/4/2008!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I HAVE BEEN LIVING IN THIS COUNTRY FOR A LONG LONG TIME BUT I JUST FELT LIKE I FINALLY PUT MY SUITCASE DOWN FROM THE FIRST TIME I MOVE HERE. I FINALLY FEEL LIKE I'M HOME, I WILL ALWAYS BE JAMAICAN THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE BUT HOME IS WHERE YOU MAKE IT.i have been bless with great opportunity and good lifestyle in this country but i really never feel at home completely, i didnt feel belong until lastnight, the night we elect the 44th PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.my son was born here and he too has been abondon by his dad , just like Obama, it has torn me up by the simple fact that i fear him not becoming a great man without having a father in his life but OBAMA has change that fear for us, he can be all that he can be with are without a father because of the love from the strong women in his life. i woke up and went to the poll and voted and i did it for my son and all the people that dreamt and fought for this day.ALSO To all the men that gave up on us sisters and get a light skinned long hair woman as soon as they have money and power, just stop and look, Michelle has to get her hair perm just like your mom and sisters, and her skin is even darker than her husband's and she is the most important woman in the world so to speak. today i will go to work stand tall next to my white boss, i can feel like am EQUAL AND THAT I BELONG and THAT I HAVE A PLACE HERE....i can feel like we are more than fried chicken eaters & cool aid drinkers as they so oftenly stereotype us, we are now a POTENTIAL PRESIDENT , ARE FOR THOSE OF US WHO IS TOO OLD, THEN OUR KIDS MAY HAVE A CHANCE, THANKS TO OBAMA and our ancesters.
