I’m going to write something deep and heartfelt later today when I really have a chance to let Barack Obama’s win sink in. I’m going to get all profound (hopefully) and really do this historic event in America’s history justice. But right now…right now I’m just going to go on straight emotion and the since of pride I feel as an African American. I think this photo says it for me.
The First Black President of the United States…and he is really a force for Unity. Oh you should have seen the streets of NW DC and the crowds at the White House last night. So diverse…old, young, black, white, asian, hispanic…everyone was out and happy about Barack’s win. There was a new energy that has nothing to do with politics. It was about possiblities and a belief that “We the People” still exists. We can still be heard as one voice and affect change, real change.
“I am the hope and the dream of the slave”. Yes I am. Yes We Can. Yes WE Did. Congratulations America. The world applauds us.
