What does Obama's victory mean to you? What Mr. Obama's victory means to me, is that I can raise my son with hope and confidence that our world will become a better place. I can teach him that he can be anything he wants to be, even the President of United States regardless of race, color or creed.
What should we do next? Let's continue to work on erasing racism.....seems like we are not there yet. Let's keep our president safe. Thank you move on organization. Our family loves your efforts!

What should we do next? Support the platform of Obama and the Democratic party
jan B, Eaton, CO
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This victory means HOPE and PROMISE to me, my 82 yr. old mother and my 9 & 12 yr. old daughters. 3 generations of OBAMA supporters in unity! Seeing him speak in Fort Collins, CO was so inspirational and knocking on doors for him with other volunteers created a contagious energy. never have we been part of something so rewarding. This is the beginning of something wonderful!!! Here is a photo of the girls at the huge OBAMA rally in Colorado, over 50,000 people strong!
What should we do next? Unite to defeat all the negativity, work hard, and help others!
Liz S, geneva, OH
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama's presidency changes everything. We have thoughtful, intelligent, culturally developed leader in this country. Americans have shown again they can speak as a powerful voice, as they did during the great movements of our time; civil rights, womens' rights, peace movements. Now the world and our children can see the ideals so clearly stated in the Constitution live. I met so many people phoning and canvassing who were so ready to "move on" that my hope was rekindled even before President-elect Obama won the election. I'm a sixty-year old (well, not that old) teacher. I'm happy for us all, but mostly for my sons' generation, that will now move this country forward. liz from Ashtabula, OH
What should we do next? Keep sending information that keeps people informed about what's going on and issues that bear watching in Congress, Supreme Court, Justice Department and so on. This could help focus the members' work.
Kelly C, Chicago, IL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? We will get to leap from the 19th century into the 21st. At last!
What should we do next? We need to keep a close watch on all three Federal branches of government and make local governments accountable to us.
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.
Dennis W, San Francisco, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? President Obama will transform our image around the world. I was in Kenya for the Proper Walk ( and saw the excitement created by his presidency. Just bringing up Obama's name ended conflict and brought smiles to stanger's faces. The attached picture is a group of young men who were unhappy with out camp on their land. While I talked to them about their concerns I asked how they felt about Obama running for President. They lit up and asked if I thought he could win. We were friends from then on. Ashley Wolff, another Walker from San Francisco, gave them Obama buttons and we were now welcome guests. This was repeated around Kenya and we heard many comments from England and Germany while we were on our trip.
What should we do next? Help Obama to pass his progressive agenda with all of the email, blog, and phone support he needs.
Mary R, Lincoln, NE
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means my daughter can grow up in a country where we know she's a priority. She can be anything. She will have opportunities and someone in leadership she can look up to.
What should we do next? Follow his example of community organizing and reach out to form coalitions from all parties to fix this country.
Leah S, Biloxi, MS
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Here in South Mississippi we worked hard and brought a lot of awareness to our community. And although the state is red and has a reprehensible history in civil rights, my sincerest hope is that Mr. President-Elect Obama will begin to mend the racial divide and bring hope to all Americans. Love must overcome hatred and peace must overcome evil.
What should we do next? Love one another
Susan F, Verona, WI
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means my grandchildren (oldest carrying the sign in the photo) will be living in an America of hope, not despair and fear. It means that our hard work and our votes do count, we aren't just passive observers of the political drama. It means government of the people, by the people and for the people. It means every person in this country of any color or creed is my dearly beloved brother or sister. And it means confidence that we can build on the tremendous energy of this campaign to help President Obama make our country great again.
What should we do next? We've only just begun! Our national problems are huge, and President Obama (wow, that feels good!) is going to need us to actively support his programs and initiatives. We know how to do house parties, talk to people, write letters, and inform our children and parents. We need to keep doing it. The tremendous organization he put together is going to be an important part of his administration.
Candis J, Chicago, IL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means that my daughter knows that when you see something in this world that you don't like, you have the power to change it. It means that my husband's hope in this country can be restored. It means that this country has made such progress, that I can honestly say that I am a proud American. I've never felt so moved while saying the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the Star Spangled Banner, as I was in Grant Park on Election Night. There are no limitations. We can be measured by the content of our character...As Dr. King said in his Mountaintop speech, "only when it is dark enough can you see the stars." Obama is that bright star. I am committed to remaining fired up to see real change because after all, the next generation depends on us all.
What should we do next? Stay committed and don't let up. The same way we answered the call for change to get President Obama elected, should be the same way we answer his inevitable call to help him ensure that real change is manifested.
