What does Obama's victory mean to you? Barack Obama's victory represents what can happen when ordinary people stand together. Power to the people and to democracy... it works! And on a more personal note, its so nice to be an American. I continue to dedicate all my efforts to my son - a soldier in Iraq, not there by choice, a husband, a father... my son... may God keep him safe and bring him safely home to his family, in Indiana... where he BELONGS!!! I am so proud of him.
What should we do next? End the war, PLEASE!

Emily J, South Ozone Park, NY
What does Obama's victory mean to you? For the first time in my life I was able to vote for someone I really believed in. This was also the first time I donated to a campaign and actually took it to the streets to canvass and get others to register to vote. I know that the road to change is a long one but we are travelling it together. I am thrilled, excited and feel so empowered!
What should we do next? We need to educate people in our communities about the things that affect them.
Jesse W, Chagrin Falls, OH
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I woke up for the first time in a long time this morning feeling a sense of purpose. We may not know the exact direction yet - but we know that the right man is at the helm.
What should we do next? Obama and his team MUST create bite sized task items for the common citizen. Quantifiable actions that can make a difference on a large scale. I don't know what those things are - but we have an entire subset of the population semi-mobilized and ready to do more. Please use all of us!
Jenny S, Washington, DC
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Signed, sealed, DELIVERED! I'm proud of my country, proud of the message it sends to the world, and hopeful for change.
What should we do next? Fix the health care system!
Sheila P, Aurora, CO
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This VICTORY is simply amazing and soo much a BLESSING for this country! I am so happy to have been one of the millions of Americans who volunteered to make calls to others and encourage them to go out and to do the same! It was worth every bit of pride I feel on this glorious day! Now my own children will have a reason to fight the good fight for Peace, Justice and Humility. YES WE DID DO THIS!
What should we do next? We need to get started ORGANIZING our next plan for the improvments that we have been longing for for so long. WE need to hit the ground running and press on no matter what while the fire is in our hearts and the need is the greatest. Never give in to the naysayers...always look for what is good and righteous! Work hard to make this life beneficial to everyone.
Elizabeth B, Brookline, MA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? For my little granddaughter -- living her first years in a nation that dares to be hopeful and, I hope, progressive.
What should we do next? Continue, in our own lives, to consider how we can be truly excellent citizens of our neighborhood, nation and world!
Leda B, Miami Shores, FL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This Victory means we have to keep working for " change" to happen. A Victory will mean nothing until we accomplish all we fought for and all we convinced people to vote for when we were knocking on doors. The job just started.
What should we do next? keep working !
mariana r, Miami, FL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama has given everyone the hope and optimism needed to overcome the current crisis. It has given the world a message that we as a country choose someone like Obama , a kind, intelligent, charismatic, and diplomatic man to govern the future of our country. I am certain his presence will unite the country even more. I didn't vote for him because of the color of his skin but I am proud to be living a historic time for America, and tears roll down my cheeks when I think of now not so long ago African American were treated so shamefully. I am thrilled for him, I am thrilled for this country and I applaud my fellow Americans .
What should we do next? Now we need to be supportive and patient. We need to unite and keep that positive attitude, which only brings prosperity to all of us and the world.
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.
Natalie M, Maplewood, NJ
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I feel proud of our country in a way I never knew was possible. Walking in NYC yesterday, was incredible. Everyone was open and hopeful, and truly AMAZED. A dream has been restored. We are ready for the work that lies ahead.
What should we do next? Get to work! Bring home the troops, end the war, provide healthcare to anyone and everyone who needs it, fix our economy and clean up our planet... YES WE CAN!
Robyn R, Albany, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I cried with happiness when our polls closed in Calif. and the networks declared Obama the winner. My joy is a little diminished by the fact the CA Prop 8 probably passed (my gay mom just got married to my beloved stepmom). But I'm still SO happy that Obama won! He so deserved it. What a fabulous campaign. Thanks Moveon, for making it so easy and efficient for me to participate by making phone calls from home. I hope we can tackle gay rights next. Cheers, Robyn
What should we do next? Please let's work on alternative energy legislation and gay rights.
Alexander W, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? A chance to begin this century anew.
What should we do next? Not a simple question!!! I am with you as we go forward...
