America Voted

"I know you didn't do this just to win an election and I know you didn't do it for me. You did it because you understand the enormity of the task that lies ahead. For even as we celebrate tonight, we know the challenges that tomorrow will bring are the greatest of our lifetime - two wars, a planet in peril, the worst financial crisis in a century."

A part of Obama speech, a look of a very humble man whom I've known little of concerning his background, but I do know he was running for presidency. I was never a fan of politics, Democratic, Republican and everything that goes with it but after today, I was inspired and overwhelmed. I never experienced something like this my whole entire life even though I'm merely a citizen of the United States. What I witnessed today was mesmerizing.

I only got to experienced this through the screen of my bulky TV turning on CNN, BBC and Al-Jazeera back and forth which I seldom do. I certainly can feel the joy and spirits the Americans are feeling. As I glued myself to the television, I can't help myself but giving full concentration on Obama as he gives his acceptance speech. The message he sent out was captivating. I listened to every word and almost came to tears. Almost. Each sentences that came out of his mouth is so meaningful, so powerful and so sincere.

Obama scored votes a lot from the Black, Hispanic and the young generation and those who's wanting a change towards something better in the future. He brings hope in all of us by bringing all of us together no matter the age, sex, skin color and race. He's not only hoping to change America but also the world. He has made history by becoming the first Black President ever. Something to be proud of. He represent each and everyone of us whether you are African, Asian, Native America and he's there to represent us.

I see him as the next Malcolm X. A role model we should look up to despite what the world is going through. Still, he has a long journey ahead. Full of trials and tribulations. Let this be an inspiration for us all. A mark for a change. Change has come to America and change will come to us. May Allah guide him like He guided people before him and that the world can come to a peace. God bless America. God bless us all.

Today marks the history of the United States. I wonder, when will Malaysia experience something like this? =\

Skinny is talking politics ;-)
