President Elect Barack Obama

For some reason, I was knocked out by 8:30. But as my phone starting blowing up around 11:30pm, I had no choice but to wake up, turn on the tv, and let history sweep into my room. The first African-American president of the United States. What an emotional moment.

President Elect Obama just stepped out on stage. (Side bar: Goodness gracious, he's good looking.) I'm amazed at the shots of the audience. Look at these people's eyes. They're so bright. So wide-eyed. So hopeful. So encouraged. So in need.

Now that it's proven that President Elect Obama can walk on water (i.e. redefine what is possible in the Unites States), I'm nervous for him. Make no mistake about it, he will be expected to raise people from the dead, heal the sick, and turn stones into food. He will be expected to move the nation, change the way people think, and heal the country. Can he do it? Can he perform a miracle? Can he save mankind? Will he be powerful enough and wise enough to make a change in 4 years? Will he exercise justice? Will he rule over the nation with love? Will he inject security into the houses of each and every American? Can Barack Obama's government bring peace and happiness to the nation?

Because I like the man that he is and appreciate his efforts, my heart and prayers go out to him.

He has so much pressure... people are going to want and expect immediate change for things that took 8 years to jack up and its just not going to happen... so I just pray he does what is right for the american people

The question isn't can "he". It's can "WE". I think that's the point he's been trying to drive home throughout his campaign and even in his speech last night. It's not about him, it's about US.

Barack is the leader, but we are the army.

To deify this man would be a shame and a huge let down for many...he has to be allowed to remain human. He'll need all the prayers he can get...

I, for one, will be praying for his strength, his wisdom, and his discretion every single day.
