After a long, long campaign that was way too nasty, it seems like we are witnessing history being made on this night in November 2008. This could be my last time to vote in a presidential election or I may have two or three left!! I hope and pray that things can be turned around in our country and that we can get out of the mess we are in. I just looked up on the web to check who was president when I was born in 1928 - Calvin Coolidge. My first vote was for Dwight Eisenhower in 1952 when I was 24. Back then, you had to be 21 to vote so had to wait four years. I have never missed voting in a presidential election.
Just now on tv - Barack Obama has been declared the new president of our country. God bless him and give him the strength and wisdom to lead and guide us to peace and prosperity.
