Like whoa… I was 50/50 about this, partly thinking he’d loose and the part of me just hoping he’d win. It was quite odd to know immediately who the president is. I was quite getting used to going to sleep without knowing who our president will be… 😉 And this time the map was all red too, nice to have more blue sprinkled in the middle states! President Obama’s acceptance speech was amazingly humble, and that quite impressed me. I loved the way he said the opening line.
If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.
I was equally impressed by Sentator McCain’s concession speech. The graciousness and dignity of it was quite admirable.
And I shall head off to bed now, hopeful that what lies ahead of us are good times. May Allah protect us all and grant us that which is good for us, and may He bless the world with peace and justice… Ameen.
