It's the early hours of the morning here.
I am a long way from home tonight, living in my adopted country, watching the most important U.S. election that I will probably experience in my lifetime.
Polls are closing on the East Coast and people in the Midwest and people on the West Coast are still voting.
My fingers are crossed.
My heart is in my mouth.
Forget that he's Black, forget what this will mean for history. Think only of what this election - what Barack Obama - will do for us (U.S.) as a country.
Change us, change our perception of what can and cannot be done, change the landscape of hope and determination for generations of people, change our global image, change the notion that we can't change.
Yes. We. Can.
I believe that.
