Today I had a Professor ask me whether my generation understands that we took control of our country yesterday. He is wrong. We, as a generation, did not take control. We, as a generation, made a commitment.
We have taken responsibility for America.
As soon as I thought that I felt burdened but also empowered. Burdened by the weight of our national and global challenges. Empowered by an electoral mandate to shape my country.
This election was a mandate not just for President-Elect Obama, but for also my generation.
This, I believe.
