Before, i begin, i should make it very clear : I AM NOT AMERICAN, NEVER LIVED IN THE UNITED STATES AND NEVER EVEN BEEN TO AMERICA. Even at that, i'm extremely excited about the outcome of the 4/11/08 elections. Enough of all the crap little people go through on a regular, enough of "senior citizens who can't relate" governance, enough of the rich getiing richer and the poor getting poorer. We don't know yet exactly what it means for us, Nigerians in Nigeria, but i know in my heart that its a step in making the world a better place. Basically, enough of all the bullshit. Its a new day.
Its time for change!!! This is a little tribute to a new day. Yes we will!!!
