Congratulations from me goes to Barack Obama, The 44th President of the U.S. of A, and also for creating history by being the very first African-American President America has ever had.
Personally, I've been very much riveted and attracted to this man, much more than McCain. Did you watch his speeches?? They're amazing! The perfect use of words, the way he addresses the crowd, the country, the world....wow. Here's a small snippet off his victory speech:
If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where
all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive
in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your
It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and
churches in numbers this nation has never seen; by people who waited three hours
and four hours, many for the very first time in their lives, because they
believed that this time must be different; that their voice could be that
It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat
and Republican, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, gay, straight,
disabled and not disabled – Americans who sent a message to the world that we
have never been a collection of Red States and Blue States: we are, and always
will be, the United States of America.
It's the answer that led those who have been told for so long by so many to be cynical, and fearful, and doubtful of what we can achieve to put their hands on the arc of history and bend it once more toward the hope of a better day. It's been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to America.
Man, I wish I could debate like that. He gives me goosebumps. He really makes me believe in change. Our Malaysian politicians can take a leaf out of his book, no offense to anyone.
Also, I feel that he is a perfect representative for America. I mean, America is supposed to be the place where all cultures, races and beliefs melt and fuse together to form one people, right? Barack Obama is the prefect example of that.
That said, he will be facing a great mountain ahead of him, and being in the White House is going to bring a lot of responsibility down on his shoulders. I sincerely hope that all of America will back him up and forget about racial differences, because indeed, united we stand, divided we fall. I think, Obama's slogan applies to all countries, including Malaysia. We can believe in change, and we the people can provide that change. It's been proven in our election this year, and it has proven again in the American election.
Congrats again to the new Mr. President, and may all the dreams you have for the good of America and the world be fulfilled. God bless you.
