The Road Ahead

We made history and I’m glad to be a part of it not only as a volunteer for the democratic party but as a citizen, I exercised my right to vote for the first time.  We have a curvy road ahead of us but for now, let’s relish the moment of celebration.  Read on…

There are other reasons to celebrate the election of this citizen of Chicago, the only one ever elevated to the white house.  Obama won by appealing to a deep yearning for national reconciliation and unity that spans partisan divides.  From the moment he captured national attention with a stirring speech at the 2004 democratic national convention, to the last day of his campaign, he reminded us that amid our often-contentious diversity, we are one nation joined in a common mission.

I wish our soon to be President Obama to be the best President he can be despite of the challenges he’ll inherit from our current administration.  Now more than ever we need to reach out and unite America as one people, one nation.  This won’t be an easy road and divided, we’ll fail.  It’s my hope that we give our new President all our support.  We also need to be patient as we we go through these rocky roads.  We may go through some difficult times but there’s always hope.
