It finally happened. After eight painful years of waiting, and the past two years watching the campaign obsessively, real change has taken place. No more "George Bush!" when someone hears I am an American. No more pretending to be Canadian. No more exhausting explanations of how just because there is a "democracy" in America it doesn't mean that all Americans are in support of the current administrations decisions(at least not as many of them).
After staying up until 5am Moroccan time this morning to watch his acceptance speech, the reality of change has struck me, as it has struck America. Well done Obama, Mr. President. Well done American people. Well done Virgina. And well done humanity.
