Over the past two years of this highly contested, enormously exciting and at times volatile political season, there have been many highs, and many lows; however, the ultimate of all highs arrived on November 4, 2008 when Senator Barack Obama became the 44th president of the United States of America, and received the illustrious title of President-elect Barack Obama.

Moreover, the genuinely inspirational part about Barack Obama, (a black man) becoming the president-elect of the United States is that black people did not receive the right to vote in America until 1965; that's a mere 43 years ago.

The phenomenal feat of Barack Obama's history making achievement will without a doubt have a resounding impact on the world at large, and may likewise have the possibility of greatly changing the moral, social, economic, and political landscape of this nation. On the other hand, the difficult and tedious task of turning this country around, so that the amendments of the U.S. Constitution are actualized for all Americans will take judicious work and should not be underestimated.

President Barack Obama will undeniably have his work cut out for him on many different fronts. Considering the wholesale collapse of the banking and real estate markets in America which continue to have a negative effect on jobs; the current economic front must be dealt with expeditiously. In addition, it is imperative that President-elect Obama restore America's international relations around the world; end the immoral war in Iraq, create jobs for Americans, address global warming, and last but not least, deal with America's decadent dilemma of racial discrimination toward genuine reconciliation.

Rectifying these areas will take arduous and judicious work. Nevertheless, it is my belief that President Obama has the desire, the will, the skill, the intellect, the judgment, and the vision to affect a positive change in these areas; in addition to accomplishing a great deal more during his presidency.

With that being said, it is imperative that "we the people" keep squarely in mind that there is no sliver-bullet or magic wand that will immediately correct the ills of our nation. As citizens of the United States of America, we must recognize that we have a tremendous role to play in this new American chapter, and must summarily liberate ourselves from the beliefs and actions of individualism, racial discrimination, sexism and any other thoughts of social, economic, political, or religious ideologies that have not only divided us over the past eight years, but which has driven a wedge between black, white, yellow, red and brown people since the inception of America.

January 20, 2009 begins a new chapter in American history, and it is essential that we begin to genuinely recognize the tremendous responsibility that we have in assisting President Obama in creating a new America, that will at the end of the day actualize a nation, "for the people, by the people".
