When Obama won the nomination and began campaigning even more vigorously than before, I could feel it happening. I could see people coming together for a cause like nothing I had seen in my lifetime. When I would drive down the busy street I live on and see groups of people holding painted signs on the side of the road, waving and smiling in an attempt to gain recognition for Obama's cause, I knew that he had changed the way we operated even if he didn't win. And on election day, when I saw people coming out in record numbers to make their stand, I was glad that America was growing a backbone and remembering how to stand up for their beliefs. That evening I sat on the edge of my seat as the results were pieced together on my TV screen, and I learned that watching a change occurring in my country is far more entertaining than any show or movie could dream of being. Now, two months later, the end result is finally coming to be. Tomorrow is my birthday, and I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER that the first day this country has ever seen a black man in office will be my 25th birthday.
Hop in the driver's seat, Obama. I have so much faith that you will take us to a better place!!
