One of the most remarkable days in US history will come to be when Barack Obama becomes the 44th president of the United States of America. Remarkable and historic. Our country leads the world in democracy, and on this day, democracy shines for the world to see. This possibility occurred earlier on a great day of CHANGE in America. On this day, more non-black Americans than black Americans elected an African American (or more accurately part of the growing bi-racial American populous) to the highest political office in the modern world. Something most of our generation never thought we'd live to experience. Consider that when President-elect Obama was born, interracial marriage was outlawed in several states, and bi-racial children had to overcome a racially-polarized society as isolated, social mis-fits. Our collective American dream of equality for all endures, and our country stands atop again - and this petition strives to recognize Change Day on NOVEMBER 4, 2008 as the day that America re-claimed its position as the world leader for democracy, freedom and race relations. Although our work remains, we moved significantly closer toward becoming a "more perfect union." Not only was the word CHANGE central to Mr. Obama's message of a new hope for democracy, but can now live forever as a symbol of how America came together - during a time of significant social challenge - to unite and lead the world into a new direction. Support Change Day as a nationally recognized day to be celebrated by America and the world - forever!
