Hope and Change arrived

Congratulations Barack Obama on your historical victory. It is an amazing testimony to the times and the distance we, as a nation, have travelled since Martin Luther King's speech in 1963. As a boy I read the stories and saw the photos in Life magazine of the civil rights movement and the growing pains of a people striving for the light.

You have arrived, you are human and the burden and hopes placed on you by all of us are many and the path will be wearying. May God grant you the wisdom to solve the problems we and the world face. I salute you Mr. President.
