Sound idealistic? Sound overly-optimistic? Not according to many of you from all over who are telling us about the personal inspiration you’re taking from Barack Obama’s victory.
I’ve just seen Oprah Winfrey wearing a ‘Hope won’ t-shirt. Yossfat in Nairobi on yesterday’s show told us how his whole attitude to life had changed since Tuesday. But can one election really change the opportunities we all have in life?
The afterglow of this victory is still very strong. What real impact will we see in the next months and years? Is this both a sign of a more equal world now, and an inspiration which will change the world as we go on?
Or will reality soon bite and show that good vibes don’t change a whole lot?
