What does Obama's victory mean to you? I am a white woman over 60. When Maartin Luther King was assassinated, though I was an atheist at the time, I prayed for the end of racism in America and that I could be a part of making it happen. My dream has come true. I traveled from my home in Baltimore to Virginia & Pennsylvania to work for Obama. In Harrisburg I was paired with a young man named Guri who had traveled all the way from his home in Albania just to take part in this process. He felt an Obama victory was of crucial importance to Eastern Europe. I was deeply humbled by his committment. I am sending a picture of my 8 month pregnant daughter, in February on the coldest day of the year when Barack came to Baltimore.
What should we do next? We should go out in our own communities and work for what Obama stands for in whatever way our hearts move us. We should not go back to "business as usual" and we should never doubt the importance of our actions.

I cried as the announcement came, my son ran into the living room "we did it"... and on my facebook account I wrote, YES WE CAN, AND WE DID, OBAMA OUR PRESIDENT!! with great joy and pride my son went to sleep and I stayed up watching the speech and praying that god guide our president and keep him safe from harm.... this is what this victory has meant to me and my son...
What should we do next? Keep the grass groups spirit moving, continue to help these young people get involved through community service...

Lavida M, Dallas, OR
What does Obama's victory mean to you? When I first seen Obama years ago I KNEW! I told my friends that this will be our next president. I had my 14 and 10 year old children watch the whole process with me and when they announced that Obama has won I broke down into tears. Its been a long time comming and I am so proud to be an American today! I think of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou a poem I love so very much ~ Thank you to everyone who helped his campaign and to everyone who voted, you have truly changed the world.
What should we do next? Get ready for change and be patient because its going to take some time to clean up the mess.
Lesa F, Buffalo, NY
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I din't realize until I heard Obama's acceptance speech how deeply cynical I had become. I woke up feeling refreshed. Free to feel included, accepted, and ready to start again.
What should we do next? Stand behind him and charge forward.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Feels as if a weight is lifted off the country and the world.A new era is being ushered in.''Hope is not what you expect,it is what you would never dream''....I like that one. I suppose a many ''dreams'' are coming true as of election night?
What should we do next? Keep up the enthusiasm and support that has been going on. Let all the skeptics and McCain supporters know that the exact right choice was made.PEACE.
Susan B, Mansfield, OH
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I have never been more proud of my country than I am at this moment. I am thrilled, relieved, and ever so grateful. This man is a true leader: intelligent, wise, thoughtful, strong and courageous, with the God-given ability to unite people as one. And he is African American. What a proud moment for all of us - we have come such a very long way from slavery, Jim Crow and the segregated South. What a message of hope and possibility! Not only for the minorities of this country, but for all Americans and the entire world. I am bursting with emotion: relief, pride, thankfulness. God Bless America!
What should we do next? We need to keep the momentum going! This has been amazing, to see all these millions of people working together to make change happen. Let's set our sights high, and try to keep young people involved so that they do not fall prey to apathy that we've seen in the past. Let's keep our teenagers engaged in caring about the community and politics, and continue the feeling that they have a voice and a stake in what happens in our world. Let's stay involved to bring about tangible change in our communities, reaching out to people in need, making our cities more eco-friendly and beautiful, and most of all, fostering a real sense of community between neighbors of all races, religions, and political affiliations.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama's victory means a transformational age in America's history in the world. Thank you Move-on and all fellow members for having the courage, passion, and audicity of hope to orchestrate what will be considered one of the greatest non-violent revolutions of all mankind.
What should we do next? Take on global issues such as nuclear non-proliferation, world hunger, genocide, ending the war in Iraq, AIDS, Immigration reform, civil liberties, and conflict resolution. Basically, we should work even harder because we have proven that anything is possible.
Nonie D, San Mateo, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Congratulations Pres. Obama!!! Unfortunately I couldn't vote for you because I am not yet a US Citizen, but I wanted to make sure that the country will have the right person to lead us for the next four years, the period I will wait to finally get that right to vote. I did my little bit to get your name out there, and I am so proud to have done so!
What should we do next? Continue to support his plans for the country.
Tutti W, Springfield, TN
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I have cried all day. I feel that we voted on the right side of history. I am so proud to be an American! God bless our country. God bless our troops. President Obama, I told you in Elwood, IL a few years ago after you spoke at a Memorial Day service that I would pray for you. Sir, I have been praying for you & I will continue to do so. If you lead us into a new tomorrow as dignified and as wise as you ran your campaign, we will be the amazing country that we aspire to. Congratulations! My photo is of our son Ryan who was hurt while bravely serving our country in the United States Air Force. SUPPORT OUR TROOPS.
What should we do next? BRING OUR KIDS HOME FROM IRAQ!!!!!
