Here's what MoveOn members around the country are saying

Jill H, Pleasant Hill, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means that more people in the United States of America have hope and belief in a system that we now have more tools to help fix. Obama's campaign and who he is has inspired every spectrum of the rainbow to come forth and be a part of our nation once again. He has silenced the naysayers long enough to let someone with vision, hope and humility begin the process of healing our nation and our world……by recognizing he cannot do it alone, he needs every single person in this country to help him rebuild America and restore our trust in our country.
What should we do next? Keep us organized and focused on giving tasks to each one of us according to our capacity to give. You are the glue holding this country together at this time. You brought us together under the umbrella of Move On and gave us jobs to do to contribute to our country according to our own beliefs and capacity to give. Thank You. Jill Harcke

What does Obama's victory mean to you? For the first time in 8 years, I'm not apologetic for being an American. I'm proud!
What should we do next? We need to continue supporting President-elect Obama as he tackles problems that have no easy solution. We have to expect sacrifice and not instant answers. We have to hope for a better tomorrow and work toward it.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I remember my mother telling me about growing up with the children of slaves, but my children will never know what that truly meant..and I am thankful!
What should we do next? The journet has just begun - more will be expected of Barack than any other president in history -- we cannot let him fail! We must stay involved, active and vocal - especially when we disagree with him!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? As an American Indian it means that I can be proud of both the nations I belong too. For my children it means that there is no limit to their aspiration for they do live in a country with opportunities for those that dare to aspire and hope. My 6 yr old son I volunteered to canvas. I attached his photo. He would start out with..."Hello, I'm Rowan and I'm a volunteer for Barack Obama." He carried his clipboard, handed out flyers. He could even answer questions of why he supported Obama. Last night he and his got to see his work and the work of so many other folks who volunteered unfold into something amazing. They were in awe.
What should we do next? My daughter asked just that question as Obama's speech ended, "What will happen now mama?" I told her we just have to pray and continue help however we can baby.

Penny R, College Park, MD
What does Obama's victory mean to you? The most valuable part of my work with the campaign was registering voters. When I walked across the bridge and railroad tracks in Harrisburg, PA alone on a cold February day into a neighborhood where families were living in condemned buildings. I talked to them on their porches, in the local bar, in the beauty shop and on the sidewalks. I gained an understanding and compassion that broadened my mind and produced a greater sense of social injustices, inequality, and urban decay. My priorities are now forever shaped by this.
What should we do next? We should continue to stay organized. We should regularly canvass our communities to get a real time sense of the issues and their urgency. We should maintain the network that President-elect Obama has created for us, to keep our community leaders and lawmakers informed and ensure that our voices are heard.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Two years ago I would have laughed in your face at the suggestion that this Country would elect a Black man as President. Thus I cried last night and on several nights at the DNC and expect to cry again on 1-20-09. Now when I try to motivate young black boys I can say with all sincerity that if you prepare yourself and work hard, you can be anything you want to be in this "our America." This election and this man represents the hope of not only Black people but of all people for the creation of an America that exemplies the values espoused by our Founding Fathers. I voted for the future of our Country. Go Barack!
What should we do next? Mobilize for universal health care in some shape or form.
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.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? This country has Hope again When I was 8 years old, my Dad took me to see JFK's motorcade go by when he was campaigning for President. I still remember it like it was yesterday. That was the last President in MHO that truly brought hope to this country. That hope died on Nov. 22,1963, but is now back again. May God bless Obama and protect him. What a great time this is to be an American!!!! Thanks to all who helped out on the campaign. Our group got together last night and watched Obama's historic speech. What a great night it was!!!
What should we do next? Make sure Obama & Biden do what they said they were going to do and more.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? This victory means that things will be different now. People will think differently, act differently,see differently and BELIEVE differently. It truly means that we are ready for a change. People now have hope, hope for the future, for the future of their children of this nation. Now after seeing what we can acomplish, I belive that we will work to achomplish much more.
What should we do next? We should continue to work on his behalf, work on the issues. Continue to do the grassroots work. That is what brings about true change.
