Catherine Y, Randolph, MA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? To me, Barack Obama is the face of hope for our country and the world. I am so glad so many others saw that in him and elected him the next president. I broke down in tears on my way into the voting booth because I finally dared to believe that Barack Obama could actually win.
What should we do next? Pay more attention to what is happening and let our legistators know what we want
What does Obama's victory mean to you? My 14 year old son has seen that the democratic process can work, that if enough people work for something, that change can come. Yes, we did!
What should we do next? Work on 2012!
Nancy T, Brunswick, ME
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Some satisfaction regarding racial injustice--with regrets MLK isn't here to see part of his "Dream" realized. A better future for my grandchild with a world leader who cares. A feeling of some kind of freedom from the repression of Rove techniques. The joy of a new attitude towards our fellow humans everywhere. Excited at having a person with a decent moral compass in charge of this powerful nation. Sense of community not allowed the last eight years. Hope!!!!
What should we do next? Not take this election for granted. Stick and work together and make the sacrifices needed to get things on a good track. Acknowledge the need to compromise and work well with opposing views.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? A new world order is on the way. We ressurrected the american dream, we ressurrected what America truly is to the world.
What should we do next? Fix the economy, please!
chris w, Matthews, NC
What does Obama's victory mean to you? ..just like in Peter Pan - "I believe, I believe..."
What should we do next? Expect everything but be patient knowing that our political system grinds at a snails pace, even with incredible leadership. Wins will come slowly and if we are patient steadily.
Julie E, Long Grove, IL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I have faith in my country again. We moved beyond fear and hate today. Hope won!
What should we do next? I hope that President Obama will keep us in the loop through his website, asking us to participate in getting any of the initiatives he presented by contacting our state representatives and asking them for their support. I am more than willing to be vocal in my support of his plans.

Marsha M, Bisbee, AZ
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I lived in France the last few years and spent my time excusing myself for being associated with Bush and his lies and war. I am thrilled to be back in the States, witnessing the historical and profoundly moving joy of the election of the great Obamas. I can't wait to help out in whatever ways he calls upon citizens to help. This will be the greatest Brain Trust ever organised by a truly brillant and educated President: our Obama.
What should we do next? Community Service: count me in. Show me the way, please.
Jude L, Mendocino, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I worked in the Civil Rights Movement in the 60s, community organizing to improve dialogue between my white community and the nearby black community in Palo Alto. I cherish my experiences from those days and the life-long friendships formed through working side by side. This photo that I am posting is from my chef son in Seattle who went out on Capitol Hill and shot from his Blackberry. I think they are brilliantly framed and even enjoy the grainy nature of the photos.
What should we do next? Your work has been nothing short of brilliant. There are many issues to confront - I think building on the organization and getting people to participate is important, whatever subject is tackled first.
Naomi D, Roanoke, VA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? We are Virginians living in Dubai for 2 years. My daughters go to an international school with kids from 72 other countries. After this election, we are so proud to say we are Americans, and I am even more proud to say I am from the blue state of Virginia!
What should we do next? Adopt stray cats and dogs! And then fix the environment--each and every one of us. Obama needs to remind us that we are all resposible: when we drive instead of walking, when we turn up the heat instead of putting on a sweater, when we buy what we don't really all adds up. How about calling for a little sacrifice from *every*one?
Viola G, Millsboro, DE

I have voted since I was 21yrs,1969.For the first time this campn I worked in the Geortwn,De office, did door 2 door canvasing in Pa,gave donations.This election meant so much to me. I am a 25yr brst cancer surv.Barack Obama was so inspirational. When I think of all who died before this election,I was inspired to do my part for those who couldn't. It was my civic duty as an african amer woman to do what I could. Prayerfully my grd children and grt grd children will reap the benefits of the choices and changes that will be made by Barack Obama and his cabinet.He will be a real ROLL MODEL for generations to come!!!

Elizabeth W, Silver Spring, MD
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I am so proud of America right now - and finally feel hopeful for our future. I made calls and convinced several Republican friends to vote for Obama.
What should we do next? Celebrate and then let's get to work - don't lose momentum!
Laura M, Camarillo, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I hope the priorities of the country will change! I think this victory means hope for Stem Cell Research and health care reform! I've been so proud to be part of this historic election process and happy my children could be part of it as well!
What should we do next? Protect women's rights and reform the health care system :)

What does Obama's victory mean to you? This is my second time to vote in America. Our work is international and we always vote absentee. The first time I voted in America was for JFKennedy. We then moved to Ethiopia and were there when he was assassinated in 1963. We have voted from Manila, Riyadh, Dubai, Pakistan. This year we happened to be in the usa. We still voted absentee, but did visit our polling station just to get the hype. Of all years, this was the most wonderful time to be in America. We were totally participatory: attended a Barak rally, joined online groups, knocked up our neighbours, even donated…. I’ve never done that. Whoo hoo! What a hoot! I see America as an outsider, a global worker. As goes America, so goes the world. To be here, in ‘merika, is a thrill I will never replicate. Yes we can, yes we did. You go Obama! Dannie Russell
What should we do next? Merge together; unify; think globally.
