i’m proud

Published by Meghan at 6:16 pm under Babble

i’m not one to be political, but i feel the need to say something.

i’m very happy with the results of this election. and i probably would have been content if it ended another way. why? because more people got out to vote then this country has ever seen. more people registered, more people put in their opinion, and for once, the system actually seemed to work. i knew that my vote would make a very important decision. the democratic system worked. and if the people chose mccain, i knew that i would have to respect that decision because it truly was a decision by the people. i hope mccain’s crowd feels the same way. i thought mccain’s speech last night was very good, and i’m glad he ended his campaign that way. it was good stuff!

aside from that, i’m extremely happy with who our people chose. obama has shown himself to be a cool, calm, collected, focused individual who hasn’t been, in my eyes, a dirty politician at all. i don’t feel like he ever cast stones, or tried to even lash back to defend himself. he ran his campaign with dignity, and stood on his morals and what his plan for our country would be. that’s it. when it comes down to it, he seems to make extremely thought-out and educated decisions for the overall good of our country. with the mess that he has to clean up, i think he’s more then up for the task. he has a game plan. he has a good idea of what things we need changed. and he plans on changing them. something i think this country has been needing but afraid to do for a long time.

i’m ready for those changes to happen.

another thing i’m happy about is that the first president little man is ever going to know is a black man. i knew someday in my lifetime it would happen, i just had no idea it would happen this soon. it makes me very happy to know that owen will grow up in a country where we all have the possibility for greatness. obama is the living american dream. and it makes me happy to know that it is TRULY possible, and not just a possibility we talk about. that democracy really does work, that people’s votes override money, connections, and power, and when it comes down to it, that the people will choose someone they feel is fit for the job and not judge him by the color of his skin.

and that to me is amazing.

for the first time in a long time, i truly feel patriotic and am proud to be an american.

    i’m with you. Very well said and very much agreed on my part… I just unsubscribed to another blog because of all the negativity surrounding the results of the election… I respect everyone’s opinion, but some people take it too far and too extreme… i don’t think you did at all!! Respectful and educated post… thank you for the respect and well put post… I appreciate that!!

    I agree! Both men handled the conclusion of the election with dignity. After the ugliness of the last 2 elections, it was amazing to witness how gracious these two men were. Like you, I too felt a surge of pride in my country. Although I’ve always loved my country, I haven’t felt pride in what seems like forever. It feels wonderful. Like I’m home again.

    I couldn’t agree more!

    I read this yesterday… Rosa sat, so that Martin could walk… Martin walked, so that Obama could run… Obama is running, so that our children can fly! I think it really extends over to the whole world!

    I absolutely agree. this was my first time voting in an election too, and I am glad that it was one of the most important ones in history. never before have I felt so patriotic to see our democratic process at work. I am also glad to see that people can look beyond race, and see that there are many many more important things.

    So well said, Meghan. I feel the same way. I’m excited, but even more than that, I’m inspired by our new leader. I haven’t felt that way in a LONG time. I was feeling a bit jaded by the behavior of so many of our past presidents, but I’m willing to jump on the bandwagon of Obama’s “audacity of hope.” When I see that we’ve elected the first African-American president and remember all that they have had to overcome in our nation’s history and yet, still press on, I think, “Who am I to feel jaded?”

    This is wonderful to read. I know that it’s been over a week now, but I still feel this way. My husband and I have been talking about this day since 2006 and can I just say that I was right every step of the way? :D Okay, I’m done gloating, Aron. It is definitely a proud moment in our history. The one thing that does concern me is that our country may not allow for errors and for room to grow. I think that some people are thinking that Obama will either sink or swim. However, I do believe (with any new president, in fact) that there will be some things that we don’t agree with or that don’t seem to make sense to us. The upside of those possibilities is that Obama seems to be the type of president who will continue to be honest and forthright with his choices. I can’t tell you how long I’ve been wanting a president who actually deals with this country as if he were proud to lead its people. Yeay!!! :)
