Shock The World

In all honesty, the only people shocked were probably Sara Who, and Elizabeth from The View.  The rest of us knew the deal!!!!!  It’s been a long time coming, but our “Change” has finally come.  It’s hard to put into words the feelings and emotions from seeing the first Black President elected.  I am glad it happened in my lifetime, and I am happy to know my contributions and vote made a difference.

Barack Obama started out with little money and many people telling him it was “not his time”.  I am so glad he didn’t listen to them.  He stayed focused and didn’t compromise for anyone.  He is truly the choice for a new generation!

As you reflect over November 4th, I hope you’ll take a moment to watch the video and share your feelings with Epiphanyblog!

  5. They have a sign up sheet for volunteers to help W pack his shit and get the fuck out. I put us down for the 3-8 shift. The question is how many days do we need to be there? Because he has a lot of shit to pick up.

  6. Bravo!Kudos! JerzeeChick: I feel so priviliged to have been given the opportunity to cast my vote. As a foreigner who resides in the USA and acquired citizenship there are not enough words to express how exciting it is to participate in the elections. I wanted to vote on election day. I wanted to experience every second of it and I want to remember every detail of this historic day. I love your videos. Thanks for bringing to light important issues.

  7. I also would like to add that we need to reconcile our differences and to work together regardless of political party affiliation. This great nation will not be save by only one group it will take exhaustive collaboration to bring solutions to the american people. And can we all agree to stop referring to Obama as “The Black President”. He’s a man first. No one refers to Bush as “The White President”

  8. I’m almost sorry I watched this at work because I’m sitting here bawling at my desk again. My chest gets all tight with pride every time I see a picture of Barack on election night. There is no way to put in words how I feel. He ran a campaign by staying on the high road while so many threw everything they had at him…he stayed the course.

    He showed them that Americans are more concerned about the issues than the color of his skin. He won with Democrates, Republicans, Independents, Black, White, browns, Asians, men and women voting for him. We came together because he is the one!

    He said he wouldn’t be a perfect President but he’ll be the best President he can for all Americans…and that’s good enough for me. Yes We Did!

  9. Wonderful experience, we had a down low register to vote at my job. Getting employees to register, finding out if they were entered and then finding out where they needed to go and vote. We also gave them time to vote, whether it was coming in late or leaving early. I’m truly proud of my co-workers and employees for “baracking the vote”. I was there in the am and got back in line for my mother and was able to still make it to work by 7:30. It was very organized and everyone, everyone was energized. What a moment and I’m so PROUD to had been a part of it. My daughter’s middle school even had an election poll and Barack won there also. That means the families are talking and it’s ALL about communication. Peace……..

  10. What a great time it is to be Black in America! I am so full that words cannot express how I feel. My initial thoughts went to my grandmother and aunts on how they never thought such a day would come in their lifetime. I also thought of my children who were able to witness this historical event. I pray that Obama is successful as the 44th President of the United States, God knows he defintely has his hands full with this country!
