"To those who would tear this world down - we will defeat you. To those who seek peace and security - we support you. And to all those who have wondered if Americas beacon still burns as bright - tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity, and unyielding hope." -President Obama

America has a new main man, and his name is Barrack Obama! I watched all of the debates, did research on both candidates, and we both cast our votes for Obama and Biden. Jeremy, Megan and Scott came over to watch the election updates with us, and it was a night we'll never forget. History was made, and I think this is one of those things we will look back on and always remember where we were when this happened. I've been excited about this for awhile. I voted early, and I've been having great discussions with my dad about the whole campaign. We voted for changes that will affect us in the next 4 years: we want to buy a house, I want to get my Masters degree, and maybe start having kids (which would be nice to have health care when it happens!). This is going to affect all of us, and I know that we don't all have the same ideas about who should be President, but that's ok. But I believe this historic event is one that will change our lives for the better, and I'm so excited I got to be a part of it! God bless America!
