I am so blessed to be able to see this moment. I have wondered all of my life if we would ever have a black President. I remember the signs that said "colored" and "whites only". I knew what "n" word meant growing up and it always made me feel like I needed to apologize for being alive and that I was somehow less than anyone else. I can remember my mother being very pregnant and traveling with us and we had to sit on the back of the bus. I can remember the riots for equality; the dull drudging jobs (thats all we could get) cleaning some white lady's house and scrubbing her floors. I remember leaving Indiana because my dad was afraid that we would be killed in the night. To me Barack is a sign that Jesus is still in the blessing business and he does NOT MAKE MISTAKES! I can only pray and ask Jesus Christ to lead him so that he can lead our country back to some of the GREATNESS it has lost and to help to pass legislation to help the ones who are most vulnerable.
President Elect Barak Obama
