Presential Election Night — November 4th 2008
Following his landslide victory in the Presidential election of 2008, Senator Barack Hussein Obama delivered his victory speech before an excited crowd of more than 100,000 adoring supporters at Grant Park, Chicago Illinois. In a state of total rapture people from all walks of life, came together as one, in celebration of the historic decision made in the polling booths of America that day.
Never in the experience of Americans, particularly older African Americans, did they by their own admission ever imagine such a result was possible. At Grant Park and across America, tears of unadulterated joy flooded the cheeks of young and old, rich and poor, and all manner of people who in their ethnic and racial diversity comprise the population of the United States.
As the euphoria grew, it triggered a joyful release of long pent up and very deep feelings. Their emotion was palpable, moving and beautiful to see. This was humanity at its finest.
Change came to America, on that momentous November night!
Go Obama / Biden & The American People
Yes you can
