Tyler B, San Diego, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I think it's amazing that so many people could look beyond all the mud slinging and actually give Mr. Obama a chance to show us what he's made of. I am so proud to call Mr. Obama, President. I also am glad for Mr. Biden, he's great!
What should we do next? alternative energy quick!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? After weeks of canvassing, and persuading, and outreach, we are completely thrilled that Virginia went blue! This is a new era for America, and we are excited to be part of it.
What should we do next? We should keep working to combat hatred and bigotry!
Melissa H, Santa Monica, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? We are the country that the world will once again look to for leadership, guidance and help.
What should we do next? We need to tackle the environment!
Jennifer O, Brooklyn, NY
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama's victory means I am truly proud to be an American. It means I can look every kid I work with in the eye and tell them they can be whatever they want. It means we are finally moving forward as a nation. Above all else it means hope.
What should we do next? Look forward and implement Obama's message of change and hope into our daily lives.
Kat B, Junction City, KS
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Barack Obama's victory means everything to me. Not only because of the hope he provides, but because of the change that he will bring - change that means the world to me, my husband, and for our two amazing little boys. I knew 2 years ago when I saw Senator Obama in Boston (shortly after he announced his candidacy for President) that he would win - and I supported him every step of the way. Last night validated everything that I've ever thought or said, and with tearful eyes I watched history. We were part of history.
What should we do next? We should continue to fight for equal rights. Our voices have been heard, now they can not be silenced.
William F, Santa Cruz, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means we will have a President that will work for Americans, not the privileged few that don't need any representation to begin with.
What should we do next? Health Care for all, turn our economy into a Green Economy, reduce our dependence on foreign oil,End the War in Iraq, build forces in Afghanistan. Love one another, and be proud to be Americans again!!
Lois L, Portland, OR
What does Obama's victory mean to you? In the preface to her novel Dessa Rose, African American author Sherley Anne Williams wrote, "I loved history as a child, until some clear-eyed young Negro pointed out, quite rightly, that there was no place in the American past I could go and be free." I thought of that line when I awoke Tuesday morning, and was so proud to see it become less true before I went to bed Tuesday night. I am a white woman, I traveled across country to register voters in a swing state, and I know this victory belongs to all of us, because Barack Obama set a tone of collaboration and participation every step of the way. I look forward to us all working together to make this administration and nation the most successful it can be.
What should we do next? Step up to the hard work of making the ideals a reality.
Stacie S, Winder, GA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I hold my head up very high today. I am so proud to tell my daughter that we not only witnessed this monumental event in history but we were proactive in making it happen. I know that my faith in God and my belief in true democracy has lead me to these opinions. There is a voice for the single mother and that is Pres.Elect Obama!
What should we do next? We should accept our role in this movement and do whatever we can physically do to help change the world. One man alone can not move mountains however he will act as the voice for everything we are striving for.
Kathleen F, Talent, OR
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I wore an american flag lapel pin today. I have never felt so proud of my country as i am today. thanks michelle obama for saying that first. prayers to the first family elect and for our efforts to support eachother through these times.
What should we do next? keep tuned in...be aware of the health of the environment and our imagined fears within our human relationships.
Deborah L, HONOLULU, HI
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Today I am so very proud of America. I started working on this campaign 20 months ago and this was the proudest moment of my life. My husband and I donated countless hours, over 1,000 phone calls, I week to Colorado to wrok for a week and meet some remarkable people on this journey. But our work has just begun! Aloha to the world.
What should we do next? We must continue to grassroots activism that has brought us to the place in history and continue. Get people involved in this democracy and stay active with neighborhood boards, boards of education, commmissions, really ask people to step up and be part of the solution.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I am pictured with my soul mate, a man I have been with for 34 years, who is 72 years old. As President Obama made his speech in Chicago last night, Jesse Jackson and Oprah were not the only ones crying. "I never thought I would see this in my lifetime" were the words he kept repeating over and over. God Bless the strength, endurance, committment and intelligence that the Obama family has give to America and the world. May our Lord keep them safe and enable President Obama to succeed in his every endeavor. Julie L. Mueller, Tulsa, Oklahoma
What should we do next? Pray for their safety and success.
Terrell C, Winchester, VA

What should we do next? Start making this country great again =)

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I have a Peace Corps friend who married a man from a small village in Guinea in Africa. they have a beautiful, extremely bright French and English speaking 2 year old little girl, Mariama. Obama proves that with hard work and persistence anything she can do and be whatever she dreams of in life.
What should we do next? create realistic expectations for the next 4 years

What does Obama's victory mean to you? The nightmare is nearly over the repair of the damage, prevention of future damage, and justice can begin.
