Barrack Obama

November 5, 2008

We can all agree that the events that have happened over the last 24 hours will be remembered forever. Barrack Obama is the first African American president of the United States. It was landslide victory that many feared would not happen.

I doubtΒ I was the only one who got emotional during his victory speech and i’m not even american! But some of what Obama was saying in that speech related not just to America but to the world and it’s upcoming generation.

Watching the news, you can see the reactions of people all around the world. This election was not just about change for America, it was a vote for the change of the Earth.

We can’t expect Obama to be a long lost saviour who will be able to snap his fingers and make the world fine again. But we can see that this is a man who has the drive, determination and motivation to do the best he can. As he said, he may not be able to make the change in just one term but he can start the path for others to follow and we can only hope that it will run smooth.

Many will argue that Obama only won this election because he’s black but there is so much more to it than that. Yes, it is a very important day for african american history and an important moment for all black people worldwide but that was not enough for Barrack to beat McCain.

McCain fought well and he will be respected for his efforts but i believe his downfall was to choose Sarah Palin as his Vice president. When we look back we can see that him and Barrack were quite level until he made that decision and though it was meant to bring more voters to his party i think it drove many away.

But from January, all eyes will be on Obama. Will he be able to live up to his promise? Will he truly bring change to the world? And worst of all, somthing that many people i’ve spoken to today have all said, will he survive to even try? Because we know there will be some people who wont be happy with this result and if there were already plans to assasinate him while he was running, what will they do now he is the president. We can only pray that the protection around him is faultless.

Obama08 – Yes they have!

    i couldnt agree with you more. i was very much touched by his speech. what a sincere man. there is still a lot that he has to overcome on this journey and i like that fact that he said even if he does not change but he is making way for others. i hope he does not get to be assasinated. he is so young and i think he has alot to offer the world. chalenges are there to make us strong not to brake us. God bless Obama and the world. Change is here.

    I think the election has shown us that we have new filters to apply to ourselves and those around us — apparently the vaules we share are much stronger bonds than the traditional markers of race, creed, caste, etc.

    McCain’s choice of Palin was very much a traditional play of left and right and the electorate decided that it didn’t wan’t to be defined as such.
