The World Says Thank You To American People For Electing Obama

It's no secret that most countries did not wish for a John McCain presidency. All nations and people worldwide hoped, prayed, wished (begged) for an Obama victory. Time and time again polls showed that Barack Obama was the favourite and if the world could cast a ballot, Barack would have clinched the victory with an even bigger margin! Citizens of the world prayed, volunteered, marched, set up blogs, designed, petitioned and got involved in many ways for Obama. Now, the world is thanking the American people for their choice! Below are a sample of pictures that reflect that gratitude/joy:
