Big Day...

Dear Diary,
Here is what I wore a few days ago but now for more important matters. For the first time in my life, as a 20 year old, well informed (I might add) woman, I voted in the United States presidential elections. It was incredible to know that all american voters hold the fate of the presidential nominees. History is in the making in so many ways.
"Americans are voting in one of the most historic U.S.
elections. Democrat Barack Obama could become the first African-American
president. Republican John McCain could become the oldest president elected to a
first term. Sarah Palin could become the first woman elected vice president.
Record voter turnout also is predicted.


I know most individuals don't publicize who they voted for, but I'm not most individuals. So I will proudly say who I gave my vote for and why. I voted for Barack Obama not just because he could potentially be the first (mixed) African and White-American to hold the presidential position but because of what he respresents. Barack Obama represnts a new wave of politicans whose focus lies on the people. He represents the unification of the different races around the world. This hope for unification between the people made tangible by the mixture of his skin color. He stands for the rights and political freedoms of the people. He is a beacon of hope for a world starving for it.

Good luck Barack Obama and Joe Biden!
