We, as young people, are hungry for this chance at choosing the direction we want for our country, and the chance to shape the face we show to the rest of the world. This generation, my generation, faces eagerly for the first time forward into the uncertain future, knowing that we will be tested but certain of our ability to meet any challenges ahead. Like Barack says, "there is nothing false about hope", and we have shown this already. We will try, in the coming years, to bring change and support progress as best we can, so that everyone's hopes have a chance to be realized. Now is a time for peace, for unity, and for strength. My own hope is for all the people who feel as I do to realize that what we have won in this historic election is not change... but a chance to be a part of change, to participate in our own future, and to nurse and grow this nation back into what we think it should be. Our home, and a home to all those who want what we want... not to be rich, or consume everything in sight, but to live together and work together to ensure for future generations the same opportunities and freedoms that have been provided for us.
