An exciting time for America

Well, I am just ecstatic about the fact that for the first time in history, my country elected its first African-American to the Presidency. It's so great that it has happened in my lifetime! If my mom were still alive, I am sure that she would be very proud. I know that I haven't talked much about politics on my site, but trust me: I am quite politically opinionated and informed. I think that in this day and age, it's important to know what is going on not only in one's own country, but also the world at large. As an artist, I feel that being politically erudite can benefit one's art greatly and can inspire others to think and feel. Barack Obama is the embodiment of a new era in the United States and I am thrilled about it. It was a pleasure going to work today being greeted by smiling faces and upbeat people. There is a special spark in the air that has ignited alot of Americans in a way I have never seen before.I had to correct my roommate when he called me from work after finding out the election results, "congratulating me". I reminded him that the congratulations is for all who voted for change in America, not just African Americans. This involves ALL of us. I look forward to four years of change, development, and maturity for the United States of America. BKT:)
