Breaking News: Bush Ducks Shoes

It was an incident that lasted a mere 12 seconds.

I was a part of the history yesterday when I voted for the first African-American president of the United States. I never saw the country so excited about an election before. Yesterday’s was different to any other elections in our history. Yesterday was history writing and I am so happy to ...
