Obama, a symbol of hope

This election day 4th of November defines a symbolic and historic dream come true when American voters casted their votes beyond colour of the skin. President-elect Barack Hussein Obama would become the 44th American President on 20 January 2009, and the first African-American President of the United States of America. 

It’s a chilling experience to watch President-elect Obama in television speaking in front of thousands of his supporters. It’s so thrilling to witness that in my lifetime a symbol of hope for many especially for the poor, marginalised, and minorities is already at the hands of the world. Yes, America has a come along way to show that nothing is impossible to change the history for good and for better. This is a new era that we have waited so much. 

I am not an American. But seeing President-elect Obama to sit on one of the most powerful positions in the world, I can’t help but to rejoice that it is a beginning of a new era of change, democracy, and equality. It may not be in my own country, but a Big Hope sprung that someday in other parts of the world including in my homeland, a change for justice, peace, and equality is possible. 

I may be just an ordinary citizen in a very small town, but President-elect Obama is an inspiration. I would like to extend my family support and goodwill to the change that you will lead in Washington and overseas.
