    Not only am I proud to be an American, I'm proud to be a Hoosier! Although the CNN polls aren't showing it yet, the Indianapolis Star has reported that Obama won Indiana. Too cool!

          Well said Josh--We could definitely feel the power & emotion up here in Canada when Obama was elected the new President!!
          I shed a tear as this was such a powerful & historical night!!

          I would be very proud to be an American right now!

              this is a wonderful day for our country - we have come together and changed history. i feel so proud that my future children will grow up in a nation that has more acceptance and tolerance than it did yesterday.

                When I went to the polls yesterday, I had to take a picture of my vote. Through out the day, I kept looking at my phone and smiling. Then I spoke to my mother & she told me that my 90 yr old grandmother "rocked her vote" too! I think I smiled all day at that thought.
                Last night was absolutely amazing. I don't think we slept more than 3 hours. We went to dinner with friends to watch the results & everyone was glued to the tv. On the way home, people were honking there horns & cheering.
                When we got home, I just couldn't sleep. I didn't want to go to sleep & wake up & realize that I was dreaming.
                I know that this is a day that I will never forget & I hope that for my children & in the future, that this will be something that is more common so to speak...that having an African-American president is only the beginning of "firsts" for our nation.

                  Montana and Alaska went to McCain and Indiana to Obama. This was soooo close though when you look at each state individually.

                    I am so proud in this moment..humbled and looking forward to international and national healing. All it takes is incremental steps to change the world a day at a time. It will be a long upward battle but it is my hope that everyone can just reach out across party lines and accept, (not just tolerate) each other and work towards making america whole again.

                      As a first generation immigrant to the US who has lived the bigger part of my life here and I do consider myself 100% American, I feel extremely proud of our nation. I was very excited to vote in this historic election!!! Hurray for us and here's to hoping that the much needed change will come; sooner rather than later!
