5-17 Non-Voting Bloc Celebrates Obama Win

November 6, 2008

Yes. We. Did.

Yes. We. Did.

Minority students in Brooklyn, Rockville, and presumably everywhere else celebrated President-Elect Barak Obama yesterday. 

Sixth-graders at Eagle Academy described Obama’s acceptance speech as “heartwarming”, “outstanding”, “magnificent” and “amazing”. 

Grant Durando, of Potomac Falls High, told the Washington Post, “Today, I said the Pledge of Allegiance for the first time in three years. I said it because I’m proud–that our country can go from killing millions of people on slave ships to one that puts a black man in office. I think I meant it for the first time, too.”

And at Howard University, Dorian Archie pointed to the American flag and said, “That flag way up there means something to me today.”

Yes. We. Can!
