The Times They Are A Changin'

And hopefully for the better. At least, with Barack Obama being elected the next U.S. president, it's definitely a step in the right direction.

While everyone agrees Obama is an amazing orator, his victory speech was truly the stuff history is made of. Every word struck a chord. Convinced cynics into believing 'they can'. And raised the hopes and aspirations of millions who believe that Obama can, and will lead them to better times.

When a nation pins its dreams on one person, it often becomes a daunting task to live up to such lofty expectations. But when Obama says, "So let us summon a new spirit of patriotism; of service and responsibility where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves, but each other. Let us remember that if this financial crisis taught us anything, its that we cannot have a thriving Wall Street while Main Street suffers - in this country, we rise or fall as one nation; as one people." we believe him. Not just because of his oratorical skills, but because he believes in himself.

For those who want to see and hear history being made yet one more time (I'm sure everyone with access to a TV or the net has already watched it at least once), enjoy!
