We are entering a new era.

"I am proud of my country", spoken by Maya Angelou in an interview on TV this morning.

I too am proud of my country and also to have been part of the nationwide team that helped to put Barack Obama and Joe Biden into a place where we can start to have our freedoms and country back again. A place where people count as people rather than as money sources.

While calling into PA and OH I was hung up on only a few times, but more importantly I was thanked many times. I enjoyed speaking with people who were excited to be voting for someone that would do something positive rather than same old same old.

This is the letter sent out last night by Barack Obama.

"I'm about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.

We just made history.

And I don't want you to forget how we did it.

You made history every single day during this campaign -- every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it's time for change.

I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.

We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I'll be in touch soon about what comes next.

But I want to be very clear about one thing...

All of this happened because of you.

Thank you,"


HOPE, CHANGE, IMPROVEMENT, EQUALITY and HONOR. Thank you to all who voted for this great new administration.

I am so with you. It is amazing the changes I have witnessed in my short 33 year lifetime. OMG, I have been so taken by happy emotions that I have broken down in tears over 10 times sense last night.

Isn't it funny how when making calls, you'd get hung up on... even a few times in a row, then ONE person would say "Honey, we have a whole houseful of Obama voters here. I can't volunteer but I love that you are" And then I'd go back at that list with the same enthusiasm that caller exhibited.

It was an honor to be part of this campaign.. and wow, it was wonderful waking up this morning to the smell of change. Ahhh!


Yes Ma'am!

This was the first time I ever gave money to a political campaign. I gave small amounts every two weeks for the last three to four months. I was so inspired and I really wanted to do what I could to make it possible. Today is a happy day.

Yesterday showed us that our dream of a perfect world can come true. We are so blessed to be living in this time, and to have Obama. When my nephews and I saw him accept the nomination live in St Paul, one turned to me and asked if the war was over then. I told him hopefully it would be soon. Their future was why I worked so hard for Obama, and why I will continue to work for these ideals.
