The American people have finally elected Barack Hussein Obama, a visionary black and white man with a Muslim name and a global pedigree, as the new President of the United States. I am thunderstruck and elated in the way that love floods the heart and spreads everywhere. So grateful, I want to share this moment with you.

Let the healing of oceanic inequality begin anew, and a wildly fertile re-seeding of our exhausted earth. Stop all war. Activate peace. Cultivate self-respect and respect for others. Eradicate poverty, prevent and heal disease. Let the Obama family, at whose helm is a partnership whose beating heart we can palpably feel, inspire us. Let us give them our inspiration, and help each other now.
