God Bless America
This morning ( Wednesday 05 NOV 08, at 07:05 a.m., Riyadh time, 04:05 GMT ), my daughter called me and informed me Obama won. She was watching TV and I was on my way to office. I was about to go inside a shop to collect the newspaper. I cried. I had to use a tissue to dry my eyes before going in the store so the cashier would not notice.
It is not because I like Obama or do not like McCain. Not at all. I was emotional because a 200 years or so account of suffering is closed forever. This is the America the world wants-- this America which should set an example for the rest of the world. The world as a whole needed this change to restore confidence in America.
Confidence in America means world problems, political of economical can be resolved. I think and hope the world is better now. I was not sure what title to give to this article. A number of them were fighting in my mind.
