No matter which party you side with – The United States of America made a historical leap tonight. The election results were a thunderous cry for a country’s change. “Yes We Can” was heard around the world as Obama made his speech, and although the cynic in me knows some behind-the-scenes great political writer was the reason for the eloquent speech, part of me really believed the man who spoke the words. As my emotions soared on the amazing historical moment taking place, I started wondering: What if a politician really meant the words he spoke? But better yet, what if the country believed he did? If we believed in change- could we create it? I have always believed our country needed an inspirational symbol; a leader who would remind us “Yes We Can” when we needed it most. This Individual could perhaps create awareness, a collaboration of hope for our future, and help Americans transform a new part of history. A President, A symbol, and a motivational speaker, reminds us we are the masses, and we can and should stand up and be heard. We are aware our struggle ahead is great and our country is in need of change, but if we become that change and truly listen, involve, and speak up great things can materialize. One thing is clear to both Republicans and Democrats alike - a new icon will reside in the White House. He says “Yes We Can” and cynicism aside my fellow Americans I believe we can.
