I missed it! The most historic event of our time went down last night, and I missed the live coverage.
I wasn’t asleep. Oh no, Obama’s victory was known before midnight. But it has been years since an election was called that soon. I just knew it would take until Wednesday to count all the votes. Remember all the voting irregularities and all the states that were too close to call in years past?
I was at work until after 1 a.m. There were no TVs accessible, and I could hardly get a signal on my cell phone inside the building.
But I knew he could do it. And “Yes we can” turned into “Yes We Did”.
We have sent the powers that be a message: you MUST pay attention to us. America DEMANDS change. You cannot underestimate the power of the human spirit.
At 1:16 a.m this morning, I received a short email from Obama, as all of his volunteers and supporters did, saying that he won “because of you.”
Because of US, we have a black President of the U.S. Thank you God, and thank you to all of you who voted for Obama. Our votes and and voices DO count. We DO matter.
