The American people have spoken. Tonight, we watched history in the making.
Americans rejected a continuation of the policies of war, divisiveness, torture, polarization, racism, and deception.
Americans voted for an America that is full of hope, compassion, peace-seeking, courage, unity, and truth.
No doubt the new president has much to do to regain America's credibility in the world, unite all Americans, and fix our economy. But I am hopeful that president-elect Obama can do it.
I pray that Almighty Allah (God) inspire our president-elect Obama with the wisdom to lead with humility, mercy, justice and compassion. I pray that Allah bless our country and the whole world with peace and prosperity.
