...and for so much more that makes him the unbelievable man I voted for. I can trust in America again. I can feel hope, I can feel pride, I can feel a future. I'm sick of feeling the despair that I felt for the past 8 years, despair that caused me so many times to want to leave. Now I don't, because I have the certainty that one day this country can be great again.

Thank you, Barack Obama. Thank you for giving me my nation back.
