I recently came out of shock.
The speeches, the emotions, everything was overload. Never would I have imagined that this year would be the year to change history.
We are all making history right now, the 18 million people who voted for Senator Obama, the 18 million people who voted for Senator Clinton. All of us, joined together to make Barack Obama the first African American candidate for President from a major political party. From Ted Kennedy’s emotional speech recalling John F. Kennedy, to Dennis Kucinich’s spine chilling speech telling American to “wake up”, to Hillary’s speech telling us “no McCain” to Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama’s speech.
All 80,000+ Americans in Denver witnessed it 38,300,000 Americans watched it from their homes, even more watched it online, or read about it in their papers.
Every word was one to remember. Every moment was historical. Below I have chosen two parts of Senator Obama’s speech which stuck with me for one reason or another.
