BARACK Obama has made history by becoming the first black president of the United States. His era-changing victory came as he won a series of key battleground states, winning Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Barack Obama led his Republican rival John McCain by 297 votes to 139 as he passed the magic number of 270 needed to win the presidency at 4am GMT. Celebrations ignited in Kenya, where the president-elects father had once been a goatherd.
The 47-year-old Illinois senator will be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States on January 20 next year. Hundreds of thousands of people erupted into loud cheers in and around Grant Park in downtown Chicago, the scene of Barack Obama’s historic victory rally.
A President Obama, with his strong message of change, hope and unity, will herald a new era in US politics, bring a more multilateral approach to the world’s challenges, and perhaps transform the issue of race in America.
The sentiment of black afro Americans are that Rosa Parks sat, so that Dr Martin Luther King could walk.. Dr Martin Luther King walked so that Barack Obama could run.. Barack Obama has run and won, so OUR CHILDREN CAN FLY!! This is something that us as Christians should truly embrace. I know we all want to have a better and safer environment for our children. Gospel Music Bites will be supporting Barack Obama and we pray that he really delivers on his promise and start to make the America and the world a better place.
More… Please be encouraged, as these are the very real signs that Christ is soon to come, let us make sure we are all READY!!
