America can change

"Tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity and unyielding hope.

That's the true genius of America: that America can change. Our union can be perfected. What we've already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow."

President-Elect, Barack Obama

Hope is what has been making me cry literal tears of happiness since the minute his electoral votes ticked past 225, just knowing that the inevitable was about to unfold and the nation could finally realize the joy and relief it has been missing for far too long.

Yes. We. Did.
Yes. We. Will.
