NEW HOPE

Evening full of emotions...
The emotions all around this country... and around the world
Emotions of all kinds of people who are yearning for
a new fundamental change...
.

New dawn... New hope...
.

hoping for a brighter future
.

hello Mr president-elect...
.

" The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep.
We may not get there in one year
or even one term, but America -- I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight
that we will get there. I promise you -- we as a people will get there..."
~Mr Obama mentioned in his speech.
.


our new elected President
Barack Obama & future First Lady Michelle Obama
.


Cheers to his powerful speech & to the people
of this great nation!
"yes we can...
.



Yes we can...YES WE CAN!!!"
How do we spell HOPE?
Spell it in our heart...spell it in our mind
H O P E
"YES WE CAN!"
.

" Definitely more than an ordinary election night in America, this is a momentous night in the history of our country...This is not just a moment in American history, this is a profoundly important passage for the nations ! " ~ LENORENEVERMORE

Wow!He is now the most powerful man in the world. I am fascinated to see how he will use this newly achieved dominion.

I must say....I do feel rather gleeful as I know he has Kenyan roots as do I. haha

Hey Lenore....I have a niece called "Colours". How cool!!

Mum monitored the election all day and we both got goosebumps as we listened to Obama's speech. It was moving indeed and even us, who dont live in the US really believe that he can make change happen. After all, if he is capable of stirring an entire nation and inspiring millions to get out and participate, i can imagine what other great things he'd be able to achieve. :-) Such a great day, no?

I do hope our country can get back on it's feet, and I always hope for a better world, however I'm not sure Obama is going to be able to do that, and I am certainly not a fan of him, but I will try and support him nonetheless! :)

The Seeker said...

History is being made. Things will never be the same. How great.
All the election process with so many people around and identifying with Obama.
Many countries interested in the election.
Many hopes in a "Messias", but only a man...
I just hope he will not be murdered.
I liked it very much, but I'm expectante...

Blessings my dear
xoxo
