Reflection on the Election of Barrack Obama

Regardless of political affiliation, one must realize the magnitude of the election that took place last night. It was almost definitely the most important election in the last 65 years, and arguable the most important ever. We now have a Black man as President of the United States of America. The only sad thing is that it has taken so long to arrive. Perhaps now however, the World will not view us as an arrogant, ethnocentric, bullying country.

We cannot underestimate the immensity of such an event. Perhaps now all the schema and stereotypes can start to be stripped away, and the question of race and color will slowly start to fade. Perhaps now instead of focusing on what divides us, we can focus on what unites us. I have always been an idealist though, and people will always be people...mired in concupiscence. I pray that the Country and the World recognizes this as an historic moment in time for America, and that we may slowly and yet steadily change towards the virtuous.
