What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means that each American has a chance to change this world! It means that true unity is possible! It means that we all count...our voices matter..
What should we do next? Encourage each of us to get in all aspects of our government...starting at the local level. Learn who represents you!!
Pat H, New York, NY
What does Obama's victory mean to you? That dreams do come true - that we are a UNITED country. That as Americans we do love each other regardless of race!
What should we do next? Health Care should be first priority!
Charis F, Pflugerville, TX
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Now that this leap of monumental import has been taken, I feel like my 17 month old grandson will be able to grow up not knowing or feeling the effects of a deep and often ugly level of racial discord like I grew up surrounded by in Texas small towns. For this forward movement toward tolerance and decency, I am exceedingly grateful.
What should we do next? Stay informed. Continue to maintain and educate this amazing network of caring and involved individuals. Keep hot issues in our mainstream daily lives by providing email updates, announcements and/or alarms as necessitated by circumstances. With a voting block this large, our collective voice was definitely heard, and as of this moment will be listened to and regarded as a force with which to be reckoned. The real work is only now beginning.
AMY W, New York, NY
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama is graceful intelligence personified. Thank you to HIM for what has proved to be an incredibly galvanizing experience. Thank you for waking up the America in all of us. I realize the road ahead is a tough one, but feel inspiration and a sense of certainty that his leadership will not only see us through, but bring us back to why we are proud of this country. It has been a long time in coming....finally the man for the job. OBAMA!!!!
What should we do next? Stay involved...continue to feel his inspiration..participate in the unfold that is about to occur....
Julie M, Cincinnati, OH
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I can't wait to see how Pres. Obama will help better our country, and finally give us comprehensive energy and environmental plans, and restore our standing in the world. The picture is of our cat, who only does this when Barack is on TV!!
What should we do next? Encourage him to switch jurisdiction of ANWR to the Dept. of the Interior, so that the tighter regulations will make it tougher to drill there.
April L, Royalton, MN
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This victory means to in our humanity is restored. It means my contribution matters, I want to serve my country in a way I've never felt before. I want to hang a picture of Obama on my wall and fly my flag in front of my house. It means my three year old daughter, an Obama fan herself, who is just starting to have a real working memory will be able to say "I saw this man, I went walking with my mother to campaign for this man, I helped my mom vote for this man." This transformative and historical figure belongs to all of us, both the man and the experience. I am elated.
What should we do next? Stay involved!
Amanda W, summerfeild, FL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This is our shining moment. The simple fact that he got elected says alot about our country. Not just because he is black but because he won by a landslide. This is an amazing victory and all the voters should be proud no matter who they voted for...we really rocked the election. His victory really does mean change and we are all apart of it.
What should we do next? We should continue to support him and continue to put the effort we did into the election into his time in office to make the change possible.
Janette F, Port Townsend, WA
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.
mariana r, Miami, FL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Its a new day. Obama stands for HOPE, unity, and love...all that changes this nation and humankind.
What should we do next? Be patient, keep the optimism, look out for each other and our new President,
Suzanne G, Chadds Ford, PA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Hope for my kid's future. A new vision for tomorrow! Giulia 8, Ian 6
What should we do next? Send ideas about how to stay involved to keep up the energy and share in our common purpose of a better future.
julian f, burbank, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Hope trumped fear and that's a beautiful, beautiful thing. My photo is two of my kids, putting our hope for their future into the ballot box yesterday. Our wish to the world worked, and now, it's on to the REAL work of piecing this nation back together.
What should we do next? We've got to roll up our sleeves and help when President Obama asks for it! I'm ready!
Sherri N, Kingston, IL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This was the first time I have ever contributed to a campaign.I'm a recent divorced mom living on less than 30Kr. I donated because I've seen and felt the hope that President Elect Obama ooozes from his pores. I too am proud once again to be an American.
What should we do next? Help us reach out to the politcal right to get things accomplished as one nation. Respect differences and find common ground.
Barbara A, Pleasanton, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This victory provides an opportunity for peace and reconciliation, for coming together as a nation to remember who we are: A democratic republic whose cornerstone founding principles and ideals are not about power, money and exlusion or elitism. Rather, we are a nation that knows we can only stand, solid and secure, on the principles of freedom, justice and equality for all - worldwide!
What should we do next? Keep the grassroots efforts moving. Let our leaders know we want to do the work with them when they are working for the good of the nation and the good of the world.
Margaret S, Oakland, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This victory is sweet! I put in MANY hours and I would do it again and again. What great people I have met, what great people we American's can be. This victory means that the world is our oyster-my boys can grow to be anything they wish to be, and help to create the world they want to live in.
What should we do next? We need to be ready to serve our country. We need to keep the volunteers energized and ready.
