Minutes ago, his acceptance speech hit the airwaves in Chicago.
I never thought I'd feel the sense of joy that I do over a non-Canadian election, but remembering my frustration as Bush got elected not only once, but twice, into office, I was almost in knots to think that the Republicans would somehow weasel their way back into the White House again.
When I first heard that CNN thought Obama would likely win office - dare I say it, I almost felt... emotional.
I - as most others, not only in the US but worldwide - realize that this is a huge step forward for not only my American neighbours, but for the world around us.
There is hope. Things will change. Sometimes, the right guy wins.
I've so many things running through my head right now, so many... feelings. I've no idea how to put them into words. This is not a political blog, nor am I one to normally comment on politics as a whole, so this faults my putting my sentiments here properly.
His campaign slogan, I think, best sums it up for us all: Yes We Can. Here's hoping he can.
Things can only go up from here.
