Thank you America.

We live in a world where we are defined by our differences. We look, not at what is the same, but at what makes us feel superior over others. Children are raised by their parents to hate certain people or groups, people hold on to what they think is right and even kill to prove others are wrong. We're blind. Blinded by our own beliefs. We believe we all own the truth but the truth is nothing but our imagination.

It shouldn't matter that we are all different. It shouldn't matter that we have different skin colours, or that we believe in different Gods or in no God at all. We all live under the same sun. If we all open our eyes and face the same direction, we can walk towards a better tomorrow. We will all be able to chose who we love and follow our dreams. If we imagine a world where we won't be consumed by hatred, but where we can all stand side by side, we can change things. We can change the world if we all stand together.

We will all face heartbreak at some point. We will all go through tough moments which make us feel like all hope is lost. But we can make it through because in the end, we will only become stronger.

Thank you America for choosing freedom. For allowing people to love the person who owns their heart, regardless of gender. For allowing people to be able to live their life without the need to be rich. Thank you for choosing change.

As Obama said:

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

Let's make things better.
