Obama Won! And what it means...
The United States of America is going to have its first black president come January 2009 and that's pretty cool. Actually, it's awesome!
When CNN declared Obama as the winner, I had this surreal feeling. Was this really happening? And in my lifetime? There are no words to describe the rush of emotion that came over me. I didn't cry but I did a lot of smiling. I smiled as I listened to Roland Martin talk about how he felt honored to be one of the newscasters on such a historic night. I smiled as I watched people in Africa cheer for Obama. I smiled as Michelle Obama and her two little girls walked onto the stage. And I smiled as I texted my friends and family, sharing the good news with them.
So what does Obama's win mean to you?
