Last night both speeches became real. Finally after more than 140 years a black man sits on the Presidential chair to lead the United States into a new and diverse future. Proving once and again that those tortures, hard times, war times, protests, negligence and deaths weren’t in vane. The ex-senator Barack Obama for Illinois becomes a new dream. This is a huge step not only for the black community but for the rest of the minority in the states.
Many said and believed that this could or would never happen. The people of the United States have prove them wrong and against all odds they voted for him to take place and charge of the country. He filled the citizenship with hope of a new and diverse future full of stability and security. It wont be easy it never is but with God’s help and the good will of the people it can be done. It is not a fairy tale. It is reality and it will be done.
This is a new beginning. A new time in history. If you don’t want to miss it stay tune cause it is just starting.
“Yes, we can heal this nation. Yes, we can seize our future. And as we leave this great state with a new wind at our backs, and we take this journey across this great country, a country we love, with the message we’ve carried from the plains of Iowa to the hills of New Hampshire, from the Nevada desert to the South Carolina coast, the same message we had when we were up and when we were down, that out of many we are one, that while we breathe we will hope, and where we are met with cynicism and doubt and fear and those who tell us that we can’t, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of the American people in three simple words: Yes, we can.“

[January 26 2008]
“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 answer.
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 difference.
It’s the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, 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.”
