I'm getting pretty excited about having Mr. Obama for president. I really do feel that I can be a part of making our nation one in which peace, compassion, justice, diversity, understanding, and lots of other good adjectives prevail. I haven't really felt this before in my lifetime. I have been hopeful but really being a part of the change has seemed like a distant thing to me... not something that I could really be a part of. I appreciate that our president-elect is asking for our help. It is uplifting.
