Yes we can, we did!

Guatemalan bloggers are celebrating Barack Obama's win with songs, hope for change and personal wishes.

Quoting a Tracy Chapman song, Homo Homini Lupus says:

Changes are coming!

Although he thinks that the change will not show up in our country, he invites us to dance with him:

change, change, change!

Antigua Daily Photo, on his post Habemus New President, is celebrating and even contributed a screensaver of The Fire Volcano!, entitled Yes we did it! to the celebration.

He writes:

Even the grounds gave us good signs! The rest is history… and hope of a better future.

Blogger Cuentos Pajeros y otras pajas wrote a parody of Michelle Obama and Cindy McCain, telling their husbands that they had changed a lot.

On her post Yes you can, you did!, blogger Yo no sé nada said:

The election of Barack Obama really sends out a strong message to me. Change is happening, change is possible, and that's a good thing, because change equals (at least to me) opportunities and hope. — I must also say that McCain's defeat speech was very classy.

Blogger Fe de Rata even has a request for Obama in his article Obama the first black President: He wants the President to give him a VISA because he would love to travel to the United States and he wants him to exercise some persuasion on our elected President to abolish the law that forbids Guatemalans to party after 1 a.m.!

Early posts by bloggers in Guatemala are inviting us to dance, celebrate and even change… at least our screen saver! Congratulations Obama!

      With the election of Obama freedom has died in the USA. He is the most liberal person that has ever come even close to being president.
      I encourage the world to STOP buying any products that are made in the USA, designed in the USA, or have a USA company name on them. Obama is the start of the end with his almost communist policy.
      Shame on anyone who voted for Obama.

    2. someone Says:

      Communist are not liberal. You cannot be both. Liberal means freedom. Even God gives us freedom. The freedom to chose right from wrong is given to us by God. And for those conservative Republicans pray without ceasing as this is God’s instruction to us.

      Woooo Hooooo! The people in my pais have really tried to show the world that we LOVE YOU!!!

      We have been SO embarrassed by George Bush, and the direction his administration has taken the world.

      Please, World, keep in mind that we LOVE you, respect you, etc.

      The recent election shows that our entire country has rejected Bush, and his entire administration. Bye bye Bush. Don’t lose faith in us Americans.

      We want to hold hands with you, and join forces to save the world!

      :-)
