"And to all those who have wondered if Americas beacon still burns as bright -tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from our the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity, and unyielding hope."This morning, my dad said on the phone, "I'm not one for trusting politicians. Really. But if Barack Obama was running for the office of Dictator for Life, I'd vote for him." I feel the same way.
It feels really good to be proud of my country again.
