Absolutely!

“We are all Americans first.” (Obama)

Those words rang in my ears as I cast my ballot. Only time will tell if Barack can live up to his seemingly righteous and genuine approach to leading America in the right direction. But as it stands, you can feel it all around. A new energy on the streets from that stranger you pass. You see optimism and smiles, in those dark corners that seemed ever so present in the struggles from the college student to even the “soccer moms” haha!!! He is bringing inspiration to so many and life is what we make it, so at least with such a drastic change and Cinderella story that this election has been we can all ride this feel good wave and hopefully the shore we reach is rich and full of life, liberty and we are all pursuing happiness.

Whether we like it or not, we are blessed to live in the greatest country in the world. I believe we owe it to the rest of the world to lead. And it starts with every individual citizen. Making the healthy choices and not giving up on your dreams. I am hoping to travel the world and it seems apparent Obama is already making an impact globally. I am an aspiring film maker and hope to join the Peace Corps or similar organization and help make a good name for Americans and expand my cultural awareness. It’s up to us to be disciplined with our spending, energy use, stay open-minded and not rely on the media to help us learn how to live, love our families, love our neighbors and be critical of our authority but rational with our arguments.

The election of Obama makes me proud to be American because for the first time in my life I think this result makes us all realize that not only are we all Americans first, but we are all humans first. And we need more than ever in this country to stretch our compassion and integrity to it’s limits so that we can strengthen not just this country, but the world.

I feel that in electing Obama we have made a giant leap forward for the good of this country.

Setting aside racial undertones to elect an African American President shows how far this country has come in just a short time.

50 years ago, African Americans had to sit in the back of the bus, or use seperate bathrooms or water fountains……in less than one lifetime, that has gone away and we now have an African American in the highest office in the land.

That makes me proud.

YES!!!!!

I think so bacause living in LosAngeles what we call the “GHETTO” seems to be more challenging growing up into a better person. Not because its a bad thing but because of the bad influenced friends and siblings. To see some one like Obama win president shows you that Afican Amercan can make it.

Obamas election does make feel poud to be a citizen of the u.s. it makes me proud for the reason that the elction show that most people have gotten over racism and make it a part of the past. it also shows how diverse this country is and that most people dont care more about the race but what they offer for the country. people dont discriminate others depending on someone elses color/race!!!
