We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For.

Last night, a majority of us witnessed one the most historical moments in political history. For whom that which this event holds of major importance and significance, this will be our moment to remember. We will think back to where we were when we heard that Barack Obama had won the presidency, just like those of the baby boomer generation whom all remember where they were when they heard of John F. Kennedy's demise.

This is our moment. We did it!! For the first time in history, our generation had a voice, the 18 to 24 year old demographic had a voice that was both positive and loud and refused to be silenced. We woke up at 6am and went to stand on line and waited. Waited for that moment, when the curtain closed and was us or our choices, our futures and our children's futures. We went home promptly and tuned unto CNN and watched diligently.

We waited patiently and counted effortlessly as the electoral college votes went up and up. And let out a sigh of relief as if out prayers had been answered. It has been done. We did our part, now lets hope, that the Obama Administration does theirs.
