Obama in Chicago

A student of mine just happened to be in Chicago on November 4. She convinced her mom to take her to Grant Park, and here's what she had to say about it:
Yes, Chicago. I was there (coincidentally) on election day - November 4, 2008. This wasn't just any election in any city, though. This was THE election in THE city. It was the election that will forever make history. Obama was elected the first African-American president of the United States and I was there at Grant Park where he gave his acceptance speech. It was truly one of the most moving experiences of my life.
