On November 4, 2008 history was made. At 11pm the results of the President election were called. Barrack Obama was announced as our first African American President of the United States.

Barrack offers hope and peace for the US. Where we have been living in a world of war for the past 8 years, this new face brings a breath of fresh air. With those that disagree with having an African American...
