Barack Obama Elected President of USA

Senator Barack Obama has been elected President of the USA.  This is an historic moment because he his the first African-American.  But I have never seen him as an African-American candidate.  And this campaign was never about Obama.  It was always about us.

To me, Obama is the embodiment of the Zen aesthetic.  He is calm, focused, and present.  That means that he can see beyond the fray.  And that is what we need in a President and it is what we need to see in ourselves.

The problems of our country do not define us.  They are something that we can acknowledge, plan for, and execute ways to remedy, them but they are not us.

I am greatful that Obama has led the campaign to the promised land.  We got there one step at a time.  And I am so proud.
