Is anyone just grateful today?

Regardless of your political party preference, are you even thinking about the fact that we live in a free country where we can elect our own president? I certainly am. No matter whether I voted for the candidate who won any election, this day always makes me feel proud. Anyone else??

  • I am grateful I am alive to see the 1st black President of the United States. Why? Because they said we couldn't do it and we did it. History has been made and I am living proof of it. Anyways I am forever grateful to be apart of this country for my freedom. I'm glad we don't have to walk around covering our faces like other countries. I'm grateful I don't have to duck and dogde bombs. I'm grateful for life itself.

  • Nope Im not proud. I am proud to be an american but always have been, this election didnt make me suddenly proud. My dad is a retired marine who served his country so we can say and do as we please and I proudly say today I am as proud to be american as I was a year ago. Has nothing to do with Obama, who I cant stand.

  • No. But it has nothing to do with POTUS or politics. I suppose I should be grateful that I am alive and my kids are healthy.

  • Then why don't all of you just move to another country? I didn't vote for Obama, and my question has nothing to do with him. It has to do with living in a free country!

  • I am always grateful for living in the US. We have so many Freedoms that too many take for granted.
    I appreciate the historical moment of today for what it is, but not all the hoopla on tv. It's a media frenzy.

  • Why would I move to another country? I have freedoms that I am not willing to give up. What about you anon? Are you willing to give up your freedoms? Any of them?

  • Yeah, you have the freedom of choice. That's my question, why are some poeple reading so much more into it? I never said I planned on moving or giving up my freedoms, so your statement makes absolutely no sense.
