"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal."

I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
August 28, 1963

Congratulations President-Elect Barack Obama!


  1. I'm not a religious person and mean no disrespect to those who are . . . but all I can say is HALLELUJAH and AMEN! It's a bright new day here in Washington DC!

  2. Bravo! A brand new day for sure!

  3. This is "major" proof that your vote does count. Furthermore, when you believe in yourself and work hard towards your goal and do not quit no matter what happens, it will come to fruition.This is one of the many examples and I personally believe that one day America would have a black president but I did not know it would have happen in my lifetime. May God Bless Barack Obama and his family. :)

  4. Yes I anything I set my mind to. God Bless You and your family President Obama!! There's hope!

  5. It's a blessing that all race of people can come together and unit for one common good. We should always vote for the BEST possible candidate for what we believe he/she will fight for.

    May God wrap his arms around the Obama's and keep them safe.

  6. This is the beginning of a new life for the United States of America. Change will not come overnight, but change is a coming. God Bless president elect Barack Obama and his lovely family.

  7. Carolyn, I wrote several weeks ago that people would do the right thing...and we did. You worried needlessly and imagined a divisive wall that was not there, and hasn't been there for quite a while. Maybe now people of color will feel secure that the majority of white people are pure of heart. I grew up in the 60's and witnessed the hatred first hand. We are only 40 years away from those times on a calendar, but centuries away in our collective hearts. We are in a different time and place today. Let's celebrate together and hold our heads up high for the world to see. As our new president said last night, "God bless the United States of America." And we can proudly add, our home, sweet home.

  8. Yes, it's a new day for America, we're all finally getting it, it's not about race but the content of your character. We will get there Dr. King thank you for blazing that trail.

  9. *does a celebratory dance*

    I am soooooooo happy about this! Tonight is Guy Fawkes' Night in Britain and it seemed like good timing to be watching all the fireworks after this fantastic news :D

  10. I'm proud to be an american everyday. Last night reinforces it.

  11. I didn't vote for Barak Obama,but when he won the election was such a moving moment.Now every child growing up in American can say I'm going to be president when I grow up.We are one America not divided by the color of our skin and hopefully we will all finally come together for a common purpose.

  12. I'm so proud to be part of the human race today...Imagine all the people living as one...loving one another. We have been blessed because we came together as one.

    I really can't stop crying I'm so proud to be a part of this. And I'm very tired. Time to rest then we must get back to work because we all have our jobs to do for a better tomorrow for the change we hope...For world peace.

    And it all started with our one little votes..Imagine that.. :)

  13. This is that "promised land" he dreamed about.

  14. yayayayayayay! Today is a wonderful day!

  15. Wonderful day! It was as special here in Europe to follow the election campaign and the happy people yesterday. This means a lot to world politics too.

  16. Carolyn, My husband and I stayed up till 1:30 waitng to hear Obama's speech.As your neighbours from the north,we are absolutely delighted over his victory and for the American people.
    I cried like a baby to see the rapture on the faces of all races.What a glorious day! I know that Martin Luther King is smiling down from heaven.

  17. Carolyn .- congratulate the new president. this is good for all of us, really.

    Best wishes, Paco

  18. Hi Carolyn!
    I thought of you on Election Day, I think mostly because of the blog you posted some time ago. I truly am so happy today. I'm tearing up as I write this, but I truly believe in our country. Thank you for your insight.

    Here on the pulse of this new day
    You may have the grace to look up and out
    And into your sister's eyes, into
    Your brother's face, your country
    And say simply
    Very simply
    With hope
    Good morning.

    --Maya Angelou

    Just wanted to leave you with that!

  19. Words can't express the joy I feel since the election. We have over come some things. And hope is in the oval office.

  20. It is a wonderful day!! Not just for us in the USA but for the world. HOPE is alive and well.
