Photos by Melissa August ’09 and Marli Washington ’10, Design Chief and Staff Photographer

BMHS students were in the crowd that gathered in Manassas, Virginia when President Obama spoke the night before the election. Near the end of his speech, he said “Here’s my point, Virginia. That’s how this thing started. It shows you what one voice can do. That one voice can change a room. And if a voice can change a room, it can change a city, and if it can change a city, it can change a state, and if it can change a state, it can change a nation, and if it can change a nation, it can change the world.”
