Despite how you voted, I think we can all agree that our country has hit a new historical high. It is indeed a first that I can appreciate and feel good about. As the first African American elected president, Barack Obama has proven that anything is possible. You can be anything you want, should you put your mind to it. I feel this is a day to celebrate America. I really do hope that we can now come together as a country. It is very important that we end this stark divide. We may have our differences, but we are all Americans. We share common values and need a more perfect union. The time has come to focus on what unites us.
