That is the lesson of this evening. In a time of troubles, a leader rose from the rank and file of Americans and inspired a nation to greatness. We face so much in the days to come. It's hard, these days, to tell if the ice or the economy is melting faster. Populations are up and resources are running out. Oil, fissionables, and water are driving increasing conflicts across the globe. We face a challenge unlike anything humanity has ever seen.

And now we have a leader equal to these challenges.

Change is coming. The tired refrains of fear and hate spread by the old guard failed to move the populace. Instead, a beacon of hope ignited within the heart of the country, and shines out now across the world. Men, women and children celebrate with their families, drawn together and inspired by hopes and dreams of a better world.

It will take all of us, working together, to face the future. But with Barack Obama leading the way, I know we can overcome any obstacle, meet any challenge, and stride boldly into a new age of human history.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
