It's a happy and amazing time right now-I've told Trav and Mo that there are people in the streets here cheering.

I want to go to sleep, but there's NO WAY I'm missing this acceptance speech. No. Way.

Travis said...

He did it. And we did it!

I'm definitely going to go celebrate with a "Black Russian!" Provided I can find my bottle of vodka, that is. Or, I suppose I can just toss a shot of that into a cup of coffee too, couldn't I?
Anyway, thanks for stopping by my place and commenting. And thanks for being there with all the rest of us to be able to celebrate a change, and HOPE for the future again.
Cheers -and Peace!

I am sorry also Mary, I hope you were right and I was wrong, time will tell.

Debbie said...

Yes we did and we have to continue the "yes we can". I'm still grinning from ear to ear and have shed many tears of joy and hope for our country. I've never felt more patriotic in my life and feel like anything is possible.

God bless the U.S.A. and Congratulations America!!

I stayed up … what an amazing night it was! This morning I’m filled with hope for the future and I’m fully aware how challenging the next few years will be for Obama and all of us. Yes we can ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Ralph said...

The winner here is the people. Even as my choices might be different, I see as my president Barack Obama. Not the president, but my president. I hope for a constructive administration. With my help...

What a lovely pic of the First Family!

On a more serious note:

Barack Obama seems to be a brilliant, compassionate man. I hope the incredible task at hand for him is not too daunting; he has so much to take on immediately and on so many fronts.

I also fear for his safety in his new position. Colin Powell talked about his hesitations about running for president as a black man. Let’s hope that the U.S. (North and South) are ready for this dynamic change…. some people are bound to be fighting this all the way.

Don’t mean to be a downer, I just think there is so much at stake here. I hope it all works out for the best and that President Obama has a long and successful term(s) in the White House.

It's a lovely portrait and sign of a bright future. Congratulations to your new president.

What a beautiful photo of the first family!

Pagan Sphinx said...

This is so thrilling. It hasn't sunk in yet; a decent, highly intelligent LEADER in the White House.

There is hope...
