Change is Happening - America Elects First Black President

I will forever remember my 26th birthday because on November 4th, 2008, change happened-Americans voted for the First Black President: Barack Obama! The art piece above was created by artist Rafael Lopez and his description of the work really encapsulates the feeling of utter elation and positivity that pulsed through me and others around the world:

"Barack Obama is a genuine voice for the issues we face in America and the world. His vision and leadership has energized Americans and people around the globe to demand real change. "Voz Unida" in Spanish translates to "united voice." I know we can make the world better by working together and listening to one another. This will bridge the divides that only lead to misunderstanding, intolerance and conflict—divides that concern me as a world citizen, a husband, and a father. I was inspired to paint this poster for my young son as a way to express the hope I have for his future. As an artist I believe Barack Obama exemplifies the united voice of all of us, standing up for everyone who believes that a better tomorrow can become a reality very soon."
