Yes We Can

And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn – I may not have won your vote, but I hear your voices, I need your help, and I will be your President too.
-Barack Obama
Let there be no reason now for any American to fail to cherish their citizenship in this, the greatest nation on Earth.
-John McCain
I know millions of Americans will be overcome with pride at this inspiring moment that so many have waited for for so long.
-George W. Bush

I have been moved to tears several times in the last 12 hours listening to speeches by Obama, McCain, and Bush. I had not expected the outcome of the race to bring about such powerful and unifying conviction from all sides. This is an incredible moment in American history and I'm proud to be witnessing it.

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this post. I am glad to hear that I was not the only one tearing it up yesterday, as well as today. I am so motivated by his modest yet powerful speech and can't wait to see what the future holds. I feel honored to be part of this amazing time in our country.
