"Change Has Come..."

"This is our time,
to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids;
to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace;
to reclaim the American dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth,
that,
out of many, we are one;
that while we breathe, we hope.
And
where we are met with cynicism and doubts
and those who tell us that we can't,
we will respond with that timeless creed
that sums up the spirit of a people:
Yes, we can."

~Barack Obama November 4, 2008
President Elect United States of America
