US Americans… Here is to congratulate you and your country for having Barack Obama as your 44th President. It is the right man at right place at the right time. He’s the one who can and will bring the United States back on track, and he’s the one who brings people together.
It was very emotional when I followed the Election Day last night (via TV and Internet) and watched the results pour in. And then… We both had tears in our eyes at Barack Obama’s incredible speech in Chicago. It was a very special moment. It still gives me the creeps whenever I watch it. (John McCain’s speech was also touching.)
The last time I had such emotional, deeply touching moments was during the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989. Millions of people became free that time. And last night… I saw people from all over the world celebrating, including entire Germany. (Likely 98% wished he would win, including me.)
A historical moment that will change our lives to the better. The American dream is alive again.
I’m so proud and happy for you Americans.
Thank you, Barack Obama.
P.S. For some more touching moments, here’s a video of Barack Obama’s Berlin speech (July 24th, 2008) in front of more than 200,000 celebrating, cheering people (and this although he was just a candidate that time!). Listen closely to what he said.
Amazing. Simply amazing.
