Praise the Lord!
I have been successful at staying away from politics on this blog, but now that the election is over, I have to say a few things. As an African-American in this great country known as the United States of America, I have to use this platform to celebrate what I consider the one of the greatest moments of my life and certainly one of the greatest in African-American history. The USA, has elected it's first African-American President. This is something I never thought I would see in my lifetime.
I'm amazed, I'm proud, but most importantly, I feel blessed. Blessed not only because I know in my heart that things will get better in this country -- our economy, healthcare system, and education. We'll end this war and bring our sons home, but mostly, I feel blessed, because I know that there is hope. Hope for a better, brighter tomorrow where we perhaps won't be segregated by race and class, but where we as the Christian nation, will begin to walk in the love and peace that Jesus left us as a living legacy.
I appreciate Mr. Obama, not only for the will and endurance to run this race, but I appreciate him for having the audacity to hope. He has truly proved the words that "Yes, We Can!"
God Bless Mr. Obama and his family.
