雖然我不是美國人也很愛台灣,但站在美國的土地上,聽見Obama當選演講感謝所有黑、白、黃、拉丁、異性戀、同性戀、殘障、健全等選民的支持,還是激動的落下感動的眼淚。

沒錯,人就是要活得有自信,欣賞自己的價值,不需要自貶自己,當時間到了,社會成熟了,所有的歧視和不愉快自然會漸漸淡去。但如果你連自己都不相信自己,就很難撐到看到幸福的那一天。此刻,我覺得心滿意足,也自許要為Gay Community 做更多的事。

這段精采的演說,比所有的音樂都好聽多了。

President-Elect Barack Obama's Victory Speech in Grant Park, Chicago, Nov. 4, 2008

 

Hello, Chicago.

 

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

 

It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen, by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different, that their voices could be that difference.

 

It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states.

 

We are, and always will be, the United States of America.
