Yes We Can!

I am so happy! All Americans are experiencing history history right now. As an American, I can't tell you how proud it makes me to know that after all this time, our country has put aside racial differences to elect a candidate that will bring about the change we need. As an African American, I take great pride in knowing that after hundreds of years of oppression, it is now possible for a black man to become the most powerful leader in the world. As an African American WOMAN, seeing Michelle Obama and the beautiful Obama girls in the White House makes me so emotional. I can now truthfully tell my children that the sky is the limit to what they can succeed. This is a proud day for me, and for our country.

It is indeed a brand new day ! What a wonderful time to be alive to witness it. I am 50 yrs old and I remember well the 60's and all of the turbulent times that had to happen to get us to this place. I am happy to say that the man won inspite of race( he is indeed the most qualified) , but as a result the racial glass ceiling has finally been broken. It is an outstanding moment !
