To everyone who emailed me already....

Thanks for kind words for America...

 It's really a day that I can say I feel very PROUD to be an American citizen and NOT feel embarassed by a really terrible president Bush and his administration!!

 It is an historical day for us Americans... for the world, as well.... I am sooo overjoyed that he won, that WE WON, and with the huge margin (A LANDSLIDE), it really restores my faith in the American people, as well.. That they are not all dumb knuckleheads!!

Do you know that Sarkozy was the first to call Obama and congratulate him?
I heard it on the news when they announced it this morning... 

I got up a littlebefore 4 am and stayed up until 6:30 to watch the excitement and acceptance speech... I am soooo proud of Mr. Obama and his eloquence... I hope that he will really be able to bring about some positive changes for the country andhelp restore America's reputation.... I know he has a long road ahead of him
but he seems to have the energy and passion to do it!!!


This post is taking part in the Virtual Post-Election Bash Kick Off, hosted by Diane @ Martini's For Two

leesa - i said the exact same this to my husband "i feel proud to be an america"...we did the right thing, we will no longer be laughed at, looked down at, hated...we also made history which is pretty cool. we got up around 4:30 to watch msn on the internet.

Hi Leesa,
Most of the Americans are/will be walking on a cloud on this 5 November.
Big hugs to you
((((((((((((( )))))))))))))

yes it seems to good to be true :)

the whole world was supporting him. I'm listening to radio and the journalist is interviewing a guy from Senegal who created a support comity in Dakkar for Obama!
it was incredible all this fervor to him.

I'm glad to learn that Sarkozy was the first one to congratulate him!

Hi Leesa!!!!
I am so happy tooo....I was never so hapy about anything political...And communicating on FB, many people in Europe feel the same way...Oh, this is just wonderful... he will have extremely hard time but it always takes longer to heal something than smash and break it...

naturelle said...

I didn't sleep and I cried out of joy... This is just incredible!

I was up watching this morning early too! I cried when he gave his acceptance speech. It is so crazy how now I feel so much more PROUD to be an American in France!!

Marie said...

Leesa, this is a great day !
I am not American but I do really feel proud about you guys.
My son is only 3 and 1/2 but I told him this morning : "Your country elected the first African-American President !". I am sure he didn't understand all the meanings of what I told him but I needed to do it !
Besides, he brings so much hope and looks really hard-working that he'll clearly change the US !
Bravo !!

I too am proud to be an American today, and proud of my next government... with the current administration I often try to avoid telling people where I am from.

In the early going, I was so afraid America was going to again show us it's ugly side. But intelligence has finally prevailed.

Andrea said...

It's so fantastic to be an American! We voted, made our choice, we were heard and that feels awesome! I wish I was 'at home' in the US to celebrate but this Virtual Bash is pretty darn great too!

Diane Mandy said...

Goosebumps. I still got them!! Isn't it fantastic??

Leesa said...

Hi Everyone---

Thanks sooo much for voicing your thoughts on this wonderful day in history! WE did it... together! I'm just sooo excited about all of this... I was really worried that he wasn't going to win, but I prayed really hard, like I'm sure millions of others did!! AMEN... Maybe now we can start to solve some problems that America is facing--- both domestic and international!!
Thanks again for stopping by!!

Obama's speech was amazing - thrilling even. McCain was also very honorable... wow!

I feel extremely proud to be an America, however, I am ashamed to be a Californian since Prop 8 passed. I am reliving 2000 all over again. One giant leap forward for America! One giant leap backward for civil rights and California!

Leesa said...

Hi Sar,

I know what you mean... It's very unjust! WHen will things be fair?! I hope it's overtruned or that enough people protest... It's about human rights and equality, after alll!!!
