Congratulations, Democracy! With Barack Obama as the next President of the United States, the entire world rejoices in a new future for the country. Some people are skeptical, and that’s okay. Lots of uncertainty always comes with a new President. The reaction to this landslide win is unprecedented. The world seems to be a bit brighter when you walk outside. People are smiling at you and saying good morning. And I live in NY! That’s hard to come by on a regular day before this. It brings a tear to my eye. My re-emerging optimism is about to reach its full potential. One feels that there are many positive, unifying possibilities to look forward to in this country and the world. I can’t wait to see what will unfold.
