America Wins!

The long campaign is over. Barack Obama is the new president-elect of the United States. In 2 1/2 months, Barack will move into the White House and start steering the United States away from the nightmare of the last eight years. It will take time and it will take our support, but he is a man of great intellect who knows how to surround himself with the right minds - that is how he won the Presidency, with intelligence and the wisdom to choose the right people to help him get there.

This is a historic moment, of course. An African-American is now President of the United States. Our history has included enslavement of those with dark skins, battles to keep slavery alive, and racism that still exists today, though luckily not at the levels seen in the past. This moment will be remembered in the history books. We will be able to talk with our children and grandchildren about how we voted during this election.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who have helped make this happen.
