The gym at Democracy Prep High School was filled with nearly 1,000 people who came out to support President Obama's second term. Shauna Mark-Odinga, who came to the event with her family, says she has high hopes for the next four years.
"When I look across this room I see hope, I see strength, I see power, I see peace," said Mark-Odinga. "I feel like all of the energy will go into president Obama's second term."
Fellow New Yorker Greg Packer said he is just as excited as he was four years ago.
