Thousands showed up at the Whitehouse on Penn Ave on November 4th Night after the Election....Sheer Joy....Reclaiming the White House For We the People....They Danced...they hugged...they sang...They rejoiced...They Cheered...As People were around the world and around the Country......People went to the Streets in Cities and Small Towns....Change had Come.
"A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
About Election Night 2008......
I rushed home from work on Election Night November 4th at 10:30 PM,expecting an All Nighter...and worried and wondering... and turned on the TV and 6-6 yelled to me "Ohio Went Blue", he was in his room watching CNN, ...I said Really ? REALLY ? WOW....and then I ran into the little TV room and turned the TV on to MSNBC and within minutes- I saw this Very Footage that I have posted below....and listened to Keith make THE Announcement that Obama was indeed OUR Next President.....It was the most Amazing Moment....It is 8 minutes of Footage of WE THE PEOPLE celebrating ..it is poignant..powerful...and moving.....I can not watch it even now without crying....It was and is the END of the Bush Regime....Finally.....Hope Means Power and Change Has Come.....
After Keith....the Victory Speech at Grant Park..
6-6 pointed out that the DNC Convention Night in August was pretty Amazing too..
I was so grateful to have Shared this WHOLE Election year with everyone...so many came and joined in as I blogged ALL of it, every single Debate ( and yes, even the Repug ones) and every press conference and many many Rallies and speechs....it was an amazing year...in so many ways...Unforgettable....Thank you to all of you for your hard work, your passion, your enthusiasm...for Fighting for Our Country.....and for being here and for Making History.
The Next Day Blue Gal made this Video showing People Around the World Celebrating.....it was beautiful..it showed the Joy and the spontaneous sharing of The Moment....
And Linked to the title is Johnny Nash " I Can See Clearly Now".....Never doubt the Power of Hope Folks....Believing is a powerful thing....any Community Organizer will tell you.....
What was your Favorite Moment that you will never forget of 2008 ??
