Countdown to Inauguration

The countdown is coming to a close. Barack Obama will be President in just under 25 hours. I am so proud to have taken part in American history by supporting and voting for Obama. And even if you didn't vote for him, just being an American on the day when the first black President is inaugurated is a big deal.

There is no doubt that tomorrow will be a powerful and emotional day for the people of the United States. By electing Obama as the first black President, we've proved we are a nation of one people. We promote equality for all. We care about electing the best candidate for the job, no matter the color of his skin.

Today, more than ever, I am proud to be an American.

This is such an amazing event it transcends borders.

I think half of Canada is come to a halt tomorrow morning as people crowd around televisions.

And prepare to cheer!

I agree completely!

It was the first day in a long time I felt I could once again hold my head up high and be VERY proud to be an American!

It was a grand, historical, and unforgettable day!
