america! Pictures, Images and Photos

What a night folks, What a night... I am speachless(although I have a lot to say). I just witnessed one of the most dramatic and historic moments in our history.

Did you see the amount of people gather at Grand Park in Chicago waiting to hear our elected president's winning speech? I felt the tears flowing down from my eyes. It was an extreme moment which I was moved by the image on TV, the people gathering, waiving American flags and chanting. Today is the day people showed that they believe in something.

I have never seen so many people being so passionate about something. I have never seen so many young people wanting their voices to be heard. This election is not about which side you are on; whether you're a democrat or a republican. This election is about the passion and hopes that people have, the desire to change the situation we are in now.

I believe both Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain fought against each other very well. And I think people in both sides fought well for their own cause. As so many people are happy and excited, I know some people may not be as happy as Obama supporters. But I want to say this; Now is the time to move forward and make a difference in our lives, together hands in hands. It's time for us to believe in ourselves that we can, too, change the world we live in.

I am not going to say much because I don't want to talk politics on my blog. But I hope and pray that what we witnessed tonight will bring prosperity and happiness to each one of you and people of the United States of America and the world!!!

The most moving and powerful speech I've ever heard. (part 1)

(part 2)

The most graceful and beautiful concession speech I've ever heard.

It was an incredible thing last night :)

And the boos were not to McCain. They were to Obama's victory.

Last night was amazing. Just saying that and typing it seems like an understatement after all of the emotions that surged through me last night! I am so proud of my generation for getting out and voting! It was amazing to finally have your voice heard.
