George J, Lafayette, CO
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It is an instant cure to 8 years of depression. Obama's victory has renewed my faith in America.
What should we do next? Work to constantly remind people of the power of their vote. Continue to be a positive force for repairing the psyche of this nation.
Pam G, Norwich, CT
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I advise a high school club called YouthPeace, and yesterday this election was THE hot topic at our meeting. The kids' responses to the election were thoughtful and perceptive, and I was proud of them. We advisors contributed an historical perspective to the discussion--our community mentor, a life-long activist, talking about her reaction as a teen to the murders during the Mississippi Freedom Summer and myself telling them that only 18 years ago when I came to work here there was only one African American faculty member (and no Asians, Hispanics, or openly gay teachers). The kids already know that they will always remember this election. In time they will recognize how this has empowered all of us to continue working for what we believe, because, dang, [good] change does happen!
What should we do next? Withdraw from Iraq, work to stabilize Afghanistan, and shift resources to much needed programs to help those in the greatest need, and, lets face it, these days we're all in need.
Catie B, West Chicago, IL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This victory is for all of us who have wanted our country to be ours again. We believe Barack Obama will organize and harness our country's energies to make our country strong again. We were fortunate enough to attend this rally in Springfield during the summer. What a honor to be with so many diverse people all coming together for a united cause. We will always carry the Hope of this campaign with us. Congratulations everyone!! Thanks "MoveOn" for all your diligence and hard work, it was invaluable. Dan and Catie
What should we do next? We should continue our grass roots efforts, retake responsibility and accountability for our actions, and grow our country...brick by brick, calloused hand by calloused hand. It is what we were founded on and what we need to get back to. Bring back manufacturing jobs that this country was founded on, close Guatanamo, end torturing, and bring home our troops only spreading Democracy to those countries who ask for it. But first, those girls need their new puppy.
jacqueline m, everett, WA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Grass roots change really can work, a great lesson, for young, and young at heart! Three generations in my family voted for hope& change... Yes we did!!!
What should we do next? Support Obama and one another. Keep the hope & good will alive!
Marc W, Chicago, IL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I'm so proud of our country this morning. The great democratic experiment is back on track. Difficult work and tenuous times lie ahead. But for the first time in years, I feel that together, we Americans are up to the challenge of making a better country for ourselves, and in the eyes of the rest of the world. GoBama, Go America!
What should we do next? Close Gitmo, stop torturing and extraditing suspects, and bring in an Attorney General who will hire an independent prosecutor to pursue those at the highest levels of the Bush administration who ordered prisoners tortured.
Holly S, Shrewsbury, MA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? That my daughter, who will be born in late December, will have a brighter future.
What should we do next? Help each other. Do our part to lift the country up.
Connie Z, Portland, ME
What does Obama's victory mean to you? To borrow Obama's words: my faith in the American people have been vindicated. My family started supporting Obama back in October 2007, a few dollars and a few phone calls at a time. We celebrated his breakthrough win in Iowa; we braved a snow storm to vote for him in the Maine primary, and now we're cheering for him from Beijing, China, with hundreds of US expats. Attached is a picture of our daughter - half Chinese half white-American. We want her to know that the American dream is still alive with Obama's win.
What should we do next? Unite behind Obama and support him through tough situations and decisions ahead. We cannot change everything overnight. Be patient. Be realistic. And believe that we're now in the right direction.
Joshua S, New York, NY
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Sanity
What should we do next? The opportunity is to unify this country behind great ideals - grassroots is the way to do it and you have the network to keep people involved!
Kymm W, Raleigh, NC
What does Obama's victory mean to you? What Obama's victory means to me is that "change" must first start within ourselves so that the change in America will be lasting.
What should we do next? Pray for all that he desires to do will be done with the help of the right people at the right time which is NOW!
Karin T, Los Angeles, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I am proud, once again, of being an American.
What should we do next? Be ready to do our part to help bring the United States back to a place where we are well-respected and trusted around the world.
Megan W, Brownsburg, IN
What does Obama's victory mean to you? For me this means our nation is once again of the people, for the people, BY THE PEOPLE! We did it! God Bless the USA!
What should we do next? We should reach out to those who did not want Obama to be President and try to make them understand why things are going to be okay.
Charles F, Detroit, MI
What does Obama's victory mean to you? A DREAM FULFILLED !!!!
What should we do next? WORK HARD TO EXPEDITE OBAMAS DREAM AND UPLIFT AMERICA.
Donna G, Baton Rouge, LA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I've been with Obama since day one. I feel like I've worked hard, convinced others to vote for the right person. And this time, the person I chose and wanted WON!! After seeing and hearing him Tuesday late night, my aunt called. She's 70 years old. She yelled "Obama, Obama, Obama". At that moment I realized that Obama won and I voted for him because of my aunt Ruby. She has fought for civil rights in the 50's-60's, she sat at those counter tops in Woolworths, she rode the bus, she knocked on doors and she prayed and waited for change. She told me she didn't think she would see this change in her lifetime, "now they can walk on me". I thank my Aunt Ruby for fighting for this day for making this possible for me and this country and this world.
What should we do next? Continue to educate, educate, educate. Because there is something to strive for; the bar has been raised and it's time for us to rise up to the bar.
Paco P, Santa fe, NM
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.
