Barack brought it all home! After the long, long campaign the winner announced early; as the electoral votes Barack commanded ended the journey for John Mc Cain.
In Chicago, the Grant Park rally was nothing like forty years ago. The Democratic Convention then turned into a race riot with the Chicago Police and it was an awful day in history. A day that left us all feeling a great amount of sadness. Any time I see any footage on those days I am moved to tears.
And last night in Grant Park another historical gathering takes place, again one that will go down in the annals of history. It was a sea of mixed races standing shoulder to shoulder, there were tears, cheers, and smiles everywhere. There is pride. There is hope. Obama is a symbol of change. Change for the common man and woman, and child. There were some there who voted for the first time in their lives. There were some that had been voting for fifty years and more. Living in a moment of history, the public rally that ushered in a president. A president for the common people. A new man for the ages. Barack Obama is a wonderful speaker. He has a great amount of charisma, and all of Chicago claim him for their own. He is likable and promotes peace to all people.
Welcome President Barack Obama! Welcome home to Chicago, welcome to the White House in a big way.
We hang on your word and as you have promised, we seek you out to lead us in the right direction, and lay the groundwork for the next century. From sweet home Chicago to around the world, may we have that peace you so have dreamt. Thank you President Obama for inviting the public to your rally. To those who have attended, or even those who watched we revel!
