Nov. 4, 2008: A Moment for History, Change, and the Future

November 4, 2008. This is a moment to remember. I remember wondering when I would see that day that America would have its first black president. Now, this day lives in history as one of the most important in American history – not just modern American history, but the entirety of our nation’s history.
