What does Obama's victory mean to you? I am a white woman over 60. When Maartin Luther King was assassinated, though I was an atheist at the time, I prayed for the end of racism in America and that I could be a part of making it happen. My dream has come true. I traveled from my home in Baltimore to Virginia & Pennsylvania to work for Obama. In Harrisburg I was paired with a young man named Guri who had traveled all the way from his home in Albania just to take part in this process. He felt an Obama victory was of crucial importance to Eastern Europe. I was deeply humbled by his committment. I am sending a picture of my 8 month pregnant daughter, in February on the coldest day of the year when Barack came to Baltimore.
What should we do next? We should go out in our own communities and work for what Obama stands for in whatever way our hearts move us. We should not go back to "business as usual" and we should never doubt the importance of our actions.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I invited friends and neighbors to join me to watch the election returns and as the election was called and we watched his inspiring speech with both applause and tears, I looked around my family room and this is who was there; my closest friend, an African-American whose 74 year old mother was raised in Little Rock, Arkansas during the attempts to integrate schools, her husband, a 5th generation Californian of Italian heritage, their daughters, one, 18, who just voted for her first time, one only 9 years old, a former teenage mom who is now enrolled in college, my own daughter, her boyfriend who is Mexican, my son with special needs and even a conservative Republican. The next morning when I walked my son to his bus stop I was greeted with High fives by two girls from India, who were glad we got it right. Barack Obama is the president we need, the president for ALL of us. I am filled with hope and a sense of possibility.
What should we do next? health care for all, energy independence, campaign and voting reforms, sensible, meaningful trade policies. There's a lot of work to be done, it's time to be bold.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? We worked the phones in Pasco county, Florida, waved the signs, talked to our friends and neighbors - so even though Pasco county voted for McCain, Florida went to our choice - the best choice for change - President-Elect Barack Obama!!! YEAH
What should we do next? Put together the best cabinet possible to further the goals of change! We're rooting for you, and counting on you, President-elect Obama!!!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Here I am with my precinct captain George Ann Simmott. We knocked on doors, made calls, handed out water, thousands of Democratic Club Voting cards and even worked as a poll worker! Never forget...hard work does pay off!! Susan Fisher-Tipton Boca Raton, Precinct 4144
What should we do next? Update records and calling sheets before they are lost. Correct info makes it so much easier!!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? We have given a TON of hope to millions around the world. I never thought this would happen in my lifetime, but I am PROUD.
What should we do next? Stay engaged as much as possible..we know how fragile it all is, having been without sane government for 8 years. Praise the good stuff whenever it happens.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Now that the immense joy is settling in and the feelings of pride, hope and victory shine on my every thought and human interaction my mind turns to thoughts of the future we will all be creating, as we have created this victory together. The support of the American people to elect Barack Obama as the 44th President of our dear country has touched my spirit in such a way that I know for certain, I will not remain the same. My involvement and desire to stand behind and place my energies toward the policies of President Obama flow stronger now than at any other time in my past. I am dedicated to healing America, healing the world and uniting our world. Love to you all! - Tina Marie Jones
What should we do next? Sign up all who want to serve, organize community leaders and keep the energy flowing... we are ready to participate just as we did to elect Barack. I am ready to help in any way I can!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? As I watch my young grandchildren growing up, I can now believe they will have a chance for not only a much better life, but also for a much better world to live in. When my time comes to leave this place, I will be able to do that with an everlasting serenity because of the changes we have been able to make. Check out the picture of my granddaughter on the 4th of July wearing "her" Obama button!
What should we do next? Continue to support our new President as he gets his feet on the ground and gets this country back on the right track. Then, we need to get him elected to a second term!!!!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Out of Many, We are One This victory is so enormous to me for so many reasons I can't begin to articulate. As a black woman, as a first generation American, as someone who was inspired for the first time to contribute time and money to a political campaign, this is a victory that was intangible to me. I didn’t spend time volunteering with the campaign because I believed he would win. That may sound strange. I spent time because I felt it was the right thing to do and he was the right candidate at the right time and I was passionate about that. In my mind, the possibility that he would not win was stronger than the possibility that he would but I followed my heart and continued on. I have to tell you that normally for me, my heart does not lead me to victory. The doubts that had been planted in my mind told me that there would be a phase 2 or 3 to reach this victory and I was prepared to extend the effort if that was necessary. In all this, I have one regret. I only wish that I could have started earlier and contributed more time and more money. I truly met some awesome people through this campaign and they have served as great role models to me.
What should we do next? We need to put all this positive energy into organizing to implement some of the ideas we supported. Winning the election is only step 1! There are still miles to go before we sleep.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I think the biggest thing Obama victory means to me is hope for my kids.. My 5 year old has loved Obama from the begining. In fact whenever I had doubts he would always say Obama would win. In fact he was proud to have a bumper sticker on his bike.
What should we do next? Help in improve Education in America!
Linda A, Midlothian, VA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It feels like a new hope becomes reality. I worked hard as a volunteer for the last three weeks, making calls, and canvasing door to door. I had all of my signs stolen and finally put up a response with my own painted poster sign, I will post the picture of that, I am grateful for having had the opportunity to help make history
What should we do next? Stay strong, do not become complacent after the excitement dies down.. Support hima nd his team in every way.
Laura H, Seattle, WA
