The Promise of Change: In your own voices
This year's presidential election meant more to me emotionally than any other previous election. America finally had two great aggressive candidates running against each other. Barack Obama and John McCain. I saw both candidates as a good choice, but I was rooting for Barack Obama.
Having an African-American become president would finally change the precedent of this country. Being an African-American girl myself, I thought that this was great to see powerful change come through this election, not only because of his race but also because of the changes he was preparing for America.
Despite all the comments made from other people about his race or the changes he was trying to make, Obama still fought hard and never gave up on this election. He fought his way to the top, and looking back on my own life, I very well could, too. The possibilities are endless, and negativity is no longer a key holder in my life.
This election started a new chapter in history, and I'm very grateful to be living through it right now.
