What does Obama's victory mean to you? Inspiration and hope for the future for me, my wife, and my son Aaron, who is pictured.
What should we do next? Figure out how to engage the US population at large to conserve energy, not just with avoidance of pain, but with something great, fun and concrete that they can get out of it.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? The victory of President Obama? Wow! "President" Obama. I mean to hear those words, to say those words, and know that he has broken a barrier that has been up for so long. That is just the most beautiful thing ever. I mean to put up this victory together with the lottery...hands down the one I would take. Sounds untrue but REALLY I can rewind that day over and over and over again in my mind, and on DVD! I had to record it. This is very historic not just for me, but for my daughters, mom, grandmother, and my famly that marched with Dr. King. He stated that this was not his victory it was ours. It really is the worlds. He has an entire nation behind him, celebrating him, wishing, hoping and praying for his success. I thank him from the bottom of my heart.
What should we do next? Support him and not be alarmed if there is a change that can't be made when we want it to be. The people of America must realize he has not only been given the power to shape this nation. He has been given a nation that has been badly shapened. He has to gradually rebuild what has been torn down. Yet I know he will do it with the people of America in mind. So just be patient and supportive. Like me.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? My father worked in law enforcement during the riots in 1968 in Chicago. He didn't get home for two days. I have lived thru martin Luther King, Jesse Jackson, always keeping hope for america. And now there is hope. Life in our nation now turns a page; it is a new day. With opportunity for all races, all people. My belief is that we will now move forward, as a people and a nation. The progress will be slow at first, but deliberate. It will be accomplished together. At 45, I saw a Black Man and A White Man hold hands and approach this new day together. I beautiful sight I never thought I would live to see. I am grateful that my parents were also alive to see this glorius day.
What should we do next? badn together, help our new president and cabinet use the force of three million online supporters to change America for the better-for everyone.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I just kept thinking of him today and the fact that he was sitting there in his office in Chicago, thinking of ways to HELP US! After 8 years of total neglect, it is so wonderful to have a President who actually cares about us!
What should we do next? I think we should wait and see what he asks us to do. I'll bet he's got all sorts of great plans for us. We chose him, now let's let him lead us on to a great future.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? We held the election on our street for Halloween- complete with privacy curtain and "I voted!" stickers. Our results reflected the nation- 68% Obama 3 yr olds voted, foreign nationals voted, anyone could vote and I got to tell each child, "Someday you will tell your grandchildren about this night!" Like so many, I am proud of my nation today. Janette Force, Port Townsend Washington
What should we do next? Help organize grassroots community projects to improve our nation.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? President Obama's victory means everything to me right now, because I am inspired to witness our Country come together for All the People! Things are as they should be, and I believe God is All in this Historic Moment for the United States. I am proud of the people of this Country, because my children's children can expect to reach for the stars, and have a Just country of people support his/or her decision to become even the next ___________ President, you can fill in the blank!!!!!!!!! I am very Hopeful and Happy Barack Obama is our President!!!!!!!!
What should we do next? We should support our President on the important issues, Pulling our troops out of war, creating Jobs for the people, helping people keep their homes, protecting the environment, to name a few. It will not be easy Pres.Obama is walking into a difficult mess. And the media or the people of this country should MicroManage everything the President does, but I think that might be beginning. I say, think for yourself and give Barack Obama a chance to get this country, and the people's minds and hearts back on the right track!

Martha M, Fort Wayne, IN
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I had the pleasure of housing (gratis) Obama staff and volunteers. They were wonderful -- both so committed and funny, too. I will miss them. I could not call or walk up and down steps, but I could take care of those hardworking young folks. And, that is what I did
What should we do next? Keep the group together to help him succeed. This experience has not only united the country, but it has united this unique and talented dedicated group for the rest of their lives.

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.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? YES WE CAN ! YES WE DID ! Obama's victory was sure to come, but the moment was just undescribable. There are no words which can fully express that night, that speech, and before that, those numbers!!! Glorious electorate numbers which came in! He shattered what was required, for the nation cried out. People want to come together, and Obama...excuse me PRESIDENT OBAMA (!) is someone I feel can definately do that. No words...I was a witness and a participant to history* CHEERS***
What should we do next? Keep the momentum--it doesn't stop with the win. Although that was our common goal, we must continue to support Obama and consider all things. These are hard times for us and he certainly has a full plate ahead of yes, continued support, continued e-mails updating supporters on his progress and implementations, more forums...the works! We need to stand behind our new president.
Diedre c, San Pedro, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This election meant that I was in control of my future and my voice was heard. Barack Obama made people feel proud to be an American, that dreams can come true. I am honored to be a part of this hiostorical event and his election. I enjoyed volunteering on his campaign and will be committed to helping him while he is President. I thank him for being the hope we need. I am proud of our country, we did it.
