Congratulations America!

"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." So, said the next President of the US.

I, we, have no doubt any more about that. And I do, for the first time truly envy Americans for how you can rise and at what you can do. And how lucky and blessed you are, to have such a democratic system and such ideals! Truly, you are a great people. And that is the reason you will continue leading the World militarily, economically and technologically; and you have just proven too, that you are above the rest of the World, morally. And now you have sent such a great statement across the globe, which will cause ripples and shock waves for a long time to come.

Very hopefully, the ripples and shock waves - will be so powerful so as to bring too, the same kind of change that will, one day, allow our children too - to have such a kind of democracy working in our parts of the World; a democracy that is truly: true, enlightened and ideal.

I have just read this, and I quote:

Rosa sat so Martin could walk...

Martin walked, so Obama could run...

Obama is running so our children can fly!

Very hopefully too, the millions of other African Americans, especially their children - will now do all that it takes, as their next President did, to rise. Rise and come out of the ghettos; and avoid drugs; and build strong marriages and families; and be responsible students, parents and citizens. And above all: take the many opportunities that their wonderful and great country has and gives. And fulfill Rosa Parks's, Martin Luther's, Malcolm X's, Muhammad Ali's, Bill Cosby's, Oprah Winfrey's and the many others, dreams. And fly!
