We Did It!!!

Like everyone else in the world I watched history, no, I created history yesterday.

I watched the American Dream come back to life in the form of Barack Obama.

I saw every group that has been held back within this nation - women, blacks, hispanics, the youth - come together for a single purpose and realize that their collective power could topple the old world.

I watched as America reclaimed its throne as the most progressive nation in the world by elected an African-American President, a feat that just a decade ago none of us thought we would see in our lifetime.

I watched and I cried as I released the pain and struggle that has characterized the last eight years and prepared to enter a new phase of life.

Our goal achieved, the question is what shall we do next?

While this is a moment to celebrate, everyone must hold true to the values that got us here. PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY is of the utmost importance!

Obama is the president but we all possess the REAL POWER since we put him there. Let's keep this momentum going and continue to be the change that we want in the world.

The Economy is in trouble - Spend less, get out of debt, and find creative ways to supplement our income

The Earth is in danger - Become more green, drive less, use public transportation when it is available, recycle

Our education sucks - Educate yourself, read more, try new things, talk to people outside of your comfort zone, grow

Health Care is in shambles - Be healthy, eat well, exercise, get off your lazy ass

There is so much we can all do to make Obama's dream of a new America into a reality and it starts today!

What are you doing to better yourself?
