Moving Forward After the 2012 US Presidential Election

The 2012 US presidential election is over and I am very happy with many of the results. Besides Barack Obama winning a second term, there were a lot of other historic moments that occurred that should get some mention. Rather than go into my own lengthy post about all of these milestones, I’ll just link you to articles that can go more in depth.

The United States is becoming much more diversified our government is (slowly) starting to represent that. With wins for women, people of color, and the LGBT community, hopefully we’ll see more positive changes as this country moves forward.

I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.” – President Obama in his 2012 Re-Election Acceptance Speech
