God bless America

I just woke up to a bright new day. Opened my computer and Israel TV was broadcasting live the inspiring victory speech of Barack Obama. Our commentators then interspersed clips of Martin Luther King proclaiming, "I have a dream." Enough to bring tears to the eyes!

In July Obama wrote a note and put it into the Western Wall, "God's mailbox." Today his request has been granted. Today there is a feeling of new hope in the air.
Congratulations America! May our world have some leadership toward peace, soon and in our days.

Great and gorgeous day !
At last, a President we can be proud of.
That's the America we love, the American dream for hope and not for fear.

We were disappointed twice before so tonight, we were euphoric! I can hold my head up when we travel again!

Wonderful! I met several people today and all were glad that the Bush Administration is over. We hope now that we can have a better relationship with Russia, China, all of Asia and the rest of the world. The USA deserves a better reputation than the one it has got under the regime of Bush, who was so belligerent to plunge all his allies into two wars..

So much hope on one man's shoulders!
At least he succeeds in making unanimity in most of the foreigner countries.

What a wonderful tribute. Thank you so much.

Thank you. It means so much to me as an American living in America that you in Israel are congratulating me/us. I hope he really does bring about worldly change for the greater good...or at the very least starts it! It would be more than we've had in a very long time.

Thank you again for your support. It is so appreciated.

Thank you for your well wishes, Dina. I pray that those who support our President-Elect will be true help-mates in the change that must occur. I also pray that those who are unhappy about the outcome of the election (unfortunately, they are a very vocal group) will be calm, not over-react and let the new administration have a chance.

Thanks for posting the AP photo; somehow, I had not seen it before. It's very moving.
