Four more years for Barack Obama.

Dan sat on the fences by his home. He could hear the cheering that was going on around the states, Washington, Chicago, New York, or so he thought. Nope, it was quiet. Silence. He looked up to the stars, no, there was no cheering going on here, or maybe it was his heart and mind that was cheering. The farm was quiet, all of his day chores had completed and the animals were all fast asleep. He took a sip of the beer he had open earlier to celebrate, even though there was no one to celebrate with.

Dan had cast his vote, though unlike the people in Texas that favour Republican, Dan had voted for the other party. The results were out just now where he sat and watched with his parents. Obama had win! The rush of joy pump through Dan's veins and he hear his speech. Though his parents were not that happy with it, but Dan couldn't care more.

He did not took his eyes off the sky, which it was full of stars. He smiled, remembering the news that Maryland and Maine had legalize gay marriage. It was a step, a small step, but nevertheless a step. "The idea if you are willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are, or where you come from, or what you look like, or where you love. It doesn't matter if you are black or white, Hispanic or Asian or native American, or young or old, or rich or poor, able, disable, GAY or straight, you can make it here in America if you are willing to try." Obama speech still rang in his head. One day. Dan murmured to himself. He knew that day would come and he wanted to be here to see it! It gave him hope.

If you paid attention to the story I guess you knew what this blog post was all about
The picture above was what Obama tweeted after his won.
I must say, I was thrill, happy, excited and just overwhelm that Obama won the election.
Even though I am not American, but I just felt happy, didn't know why though.

I see change in the country and it's a good one.
Spend 20 minutes today to listen to the victory speech by Obama.
I must say it was motivating and worth every second of it.

Once again, I congratulate Obama!
