so that King can walk…
so that Obama can run…
so that children can fly…
-an inspiring quote I saw during a news segment at a school in New York during last night’s election
So this is how it feels like when history has been made! Amazing! The first time I voted – I just turned 18 and I remembered someone telling me that they didn’t care about the election and wasn’t planning on voting. People seemed so apathetic about it, unaware of the privilege one has to do so. And now, eight years later, I’m proud of my fellow Americans because last night, there was a record breaking number of voters.
In fact, it’s a little weird but I must admit, I’m actually proud to be an American. So don’t make me regret saying it!
Onto something more amusing, here’s a link to the top 20 quotes by President George Dubya Bush:
