To the editor:

Hearts fluttered with excitement, souls stirred with emotion as president-elect Barack Obama, born the son of a black father from Kenya and a white mother from Kansas, swept the presidency in a landslide victory.

After decades of oppression and struggle—the nation watched as the mountain of injustice crumbled and the “dream” was finally realized. The dawn of a new day has come for all Americans every race, color and nationality.

I feel proud America voted for Barack Obama.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “The Constitution is a promissory note.”

On Nov. 4 in the most historic election ever that note was paid.
