I had to pinch myself this morning that it wasn’t all a dream yesterday. There’s still the work to be done over the next 4 years…but I am proud of the country for participating in the political process in such overwhelming numbers and choosing Obama to be President! A lot of people are talking about him being the “first black president.” Well there are those of us who recognize he is not just the “first black president” but also the “first mixed race president.” 😉

 

I wonder how long is it going to be before we have to keep counting “first black president,” “first woman president,” “first _____ president,” etc.? The voters have shown he is a president for all of America.


On a more celebratory note, I heard this recently on the radio, wish I knew who said it first:

Rosa sat so Martin could walk. Martin walked so Jesse could run. Jesse ran so Barack could win. Barack won so our children can fly.

 

“Change has come to America!” –Barack Obama in his acceptance speech

Remembering where we have come from, let’s keep moving forward in the fight for equality for all people.
