I swung my car close to

With record breaking numbers turning out at the polls Tuesday, Americans signified they were ready for a change by voting in their very first African American president. Watching news coverage of this historic event, I could see I was not the only one feeling overwhelmed by emotion, vicariously sharing the love, joy, pride, hope, and excitement I could see shining in the faces of so many men, women, and children. With the current economic turmoil and grim reports on climate change, Obama is
