Change Has Come!


As i wrote about yesterday, the anxiety of this election had reached us all, and although I am probably late in posting something, We as a nation FINALLY made a decision that was right!!! Mr. Barack Obama aka Barry is our next president of these United States.

I was with friends that I consider my family and I have never seen so many of us celebrate something so victorious outside of sports, that it brought tears to my eyes. As a Black man that has never used race as a crutch because of the way that I was brought up. To stand on my own two feet and if I want something to go out and get it has always been my mindset. But I have known many people over the years from kids I tutored to peers my own age to relatives much older whom were told what they CAN'T become and what they Should achieve, and now no one better not ever tell a black kid from Harlem or Chicago, or anywhere for that matter that they CANNOT become President of the United States!

I cannot wait for Inauguration Day (MY BIRTHDAY btw) and watch President Obama get sworn in. DC and the rest of the country, hell the rest of the world will be celebrating this for a long time to come.

This is history and I am glad I was apart of it and continue to be. When I have kids I cannot wait to sit around and tell them what has transpired after so much turmoil and fighting. But this is only just the beginning, because the fight is NEVER over.

You are soooo right! After almost a month, I still have yet to calm down. I think the excitement will continue up through the Inauguration. I just hope that everyone will continue to stand by him and support. Obama, his administration, and the government have their work cut out for them. I hope that we are all able to stick through it and do what needs to be done to get to the other side. Change can be a sweet thing. And the beginning has been sweet.... After the trials and tribulations subside, hopefully things will get sweeter.... Have a great holiday weekend!
