Karen W, Jenkintown, PA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? A new outlook on the future! I have 3 very little children who have no idea of the significance of this event. I am proud of the different world they have in front of them. P R O U D TO BE A M E R I C A N !!
What should we do next? Embrace the motivation and spirit people have developed. Empower supporters to take that energy and keep it going!! Create local resources or a pinnacle agency that points people to sign up to volunteer, encorage and participate in local groups to continue emabling change. Individuals made a difference in this election. Individuals can make a difference in their own communities. Help people stay inspired and embrace change as individuals - don't wait for someone to do it for us. But we need an agency to help direct people :)

What does Obama's victory mean to you? It was a joy to connect with so many people willing to work for peace and justice. May the fruits of our labor benefit all beings everywhere.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? It was an amazing process to canvass, hold up signs, call people, and come together with wonderful people in an effort to elect President Obama.
What should we do next? Focus on the environment!!!
Laurie H, Nokesville, VA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means having someone who is willing to (TRY) to fix this horrible mess we have put ourselves in. A man who is brave enough to take on some of the most controversial issues. President Obama is HOPE!
What should we do next? Be patient and let him do his job and not expect miracles over night. It took a long a long time to get into this mess we are in. It will take time to get out!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? It gives me hope. I am 50 years old and see our country united and strong, thanks to President Elect Obama. He is an elegant and brilliant man. If he runs our country like his campaign, we will endure. I was brought to tears when he won. What an incredible moment in history!
What should we do next? We should continue the support for our new President. Keep MoveOn.org an active and daily place where we can all share positive messages and support for our country and pray that those who are suffering the most will have hope!

What should we do next? Keep him safe, empowered and supported. Generate programs that help detoxify the hate by showing that loving, generous cooperation can uplift everyone.
Marie T, Aurora, CO
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I'm 30 years old and for the very first time I know what patriotism feels like. I'm proud of my country, proud of my countrymen, and proud to be called an American. We did it...We brought the person to improve our country and our world into office. Thank you President Obama for giving me hope.
What should we do next? Support our local government, and continue to provide our support and resources to helping President Obama change this country for the better.
Kathleen W, Florissant, MO
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I cried tears of joy, tears of hope last night; I have a hunch that many of us did. For me, President Obama's campaign for change has been about justice, unity, and a voice for all people~ and in some ways, all the peoples that are a part of me. I am neither a white woman or a woman of color; I am both. At the same time, my Native heritage would deny and embrace my Irish immigrant heritage; I have often been at war within my own skin. Today, I am an American through and through! I am proud to work for a better world alongside my sisters and brothers~ change is HERE and our time is NOW.
What should we do next? Be supportive! Trust President Obama's leadership and get involved in our own community as much as possible. We all need to "practice what we've been preaching". Each of us needs to stay involved in the community issues~ community organizing [gasp]. In my community, Metropolitan Congregations United and The Gamaliel Foundation are quite active. I would encourage everyone to get connected; strength in numbers. Helping to raise the consciousness of the community and to empower ourselves and others is vital to a healthy democracy!
Hayley h, Victoria, MN
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama spells HOPE for our family and my two beautiful minority daughters adopted from China...because they will grow up knowing 'YES THEY CAN!'
What should we do next? make sure this momentum doesn't fade....it will be an uphill battle, but there is much work to be done, and we need to be united to do it.
Katrina M, Seattle, WA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I have a 6 month old son. I worried from the time I found out "we" were pregnant about what kind of world I would be bringing him into. What kind of future will he have? Although I still don't know what all it will be, today gives me hope that it will be a future worth having.
What should we do next? End the wars, bring the troops home and start to repair the damamge to our country
Peter C, Rochester, NY
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Yesterday, Hope won; America won; the Constitution won. But bigotry, prejudice, and ignorance lost!!!!!!
What should we do next? Live by Baracks' example
Kathryn L, Port Ludlow, WA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? We have given a TON of hope to millions around the world. I never thought this would happen in my lifetime, but I am PROUD.
What should we do next? Stay engaged as much as possible..we know how fragile it all is, having been without sane government for 8 years. Praise the good stuff whenever it happens.
Jane W, mayville, WI
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It restores my hope in America and the world. I'm thrilled by the passing of power to a new generation.
What should we do next? Keep the interest there--educate young people that they can make this a better world. Increase opportunity with education.
Dan R, Chicago, IL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I am hoping the economy will be on the upswing and we get out of Iraq ASAP. I think the entire world will see the USA as going back to the days when we are a society of inclusiveness and not of fear and imperialism. I am hoping this will settle the anxiety people have over race and prove that we are all the same and we all have the same dreams and aspirations to be a better country and to help the less fortunate.
What should we do next? Get out of Iraq. We are spending too much money there. We need that money at home to help our people get back on their feet.
