President Elect

I have to veer away from my usual topics this morning.

We have a new president ladies and gentleman. 

It is amazing that just 5 years ago, we had never heard of him.  It is amazing that 2 years ago, he was a long shot.  It is amazing that last night, Barack Hussain Obama became the first black man elected to the position of President of the United States of America.  It is a day that my mother and father, who grew up in segregated Alabama, never thought would come.  It was with honor that they voted yesterday for this man.

I am in awe.  I am elated.  I am humbled.  I am blessed.

When my child looks at me and asks, “can I be anything I want to be when I grow up?”  I can honestly say YES YOU CAN!

I am a proud African American today.  I am a Proud American today. 

Change has come.


  1. You took the words right out of mouth. Change has definitely come!
