Im pretty excited about this. I am down in the States and it just seems like there is this great new energy. Obama has a lot of work ahead of him but I think that he will do a great job. His acceptance speech was brilliant- quite serious but I think that is exactly how it needed to be, he came out strong and too the point straight away. It was a beautiful sight- all of them on the stage, definitely a moment I will never forget. It is amazing to think that less than 50 years ago a the black population was totally segregated and now we have a black president. It is a beautiful thing and it gives me a lot of hope for the future.
