So, I have not blogged in quite sometime…Now I am ready to make blogging a part of my routine. So much is going on in my world today…We have a new President-Elect Barack Obama….So many people have stated…I never thought I would see this day in “my lifetime“…..I never thought I wouldn’t see this day….see a man of color as the President of the United States of America in my lifetime….I am keenly aware of the fact that….just because he is the first African American President…this doesn’t mean we will have countless others (presidential candidates) in the years to come…What it does mean is….those that follow in his footsteps to run for the presidency of the United States of America will be seen as formidable candidates and their campaign(s) will not be looked upon as a symbolic gesture. Prospective presidential candidates will inevitably have to step their game up because Barack Obama has changed the game.
Rosa Parks sat so that Martin Luther King, Jr. could walk. Martin Luther King, Jr. walked so Barack Obama could run. Barack Obama ran so our children and those to come will fly.
