Yes We Did

Hello, all,

Today is a very exciting day in American history. Yesterday, the polls opened, the people voted, and the results trickeled in. Senator Barack O'Bama is going to be the President of the United States starting on January 20, 2009. I am so happy and excited that I don't even know how to describe it!

Yesterday was my first time voting in a Presidential general election. In the U.S, you have to be 18 to vote and during the last election I was ony 17. I waited in line for over an hour, but it was worth it because voting gives a voice to all people. In some places, people waited in line for over three hours so that they could cast their ballots.

Last night, I began watching ABC news at 6. Enough of the results were in by 11 so that is when they announced that Senator O'Bama won. My friends and I watched it all together and then celebrated together.

I think that this election will change both American and world history.

Your friend,
