No matter who you voted for yesterday I hope that you still realize what happened yesterday. It was a day that will go down in history. I looked at Deacon this morning over our toast and orange juice and told him that he can now truly be anything he wants to be. He can even be president. Up until November 3, 2008 that was not a reality for my son. Now it is. I can’t even imagine the emotions that went through men/woman that watched history in the making last night that also sat through sit-in’s. That also marched beside Dr. Martin Luther King. They never dreamed that in their lifetime they would be beaten for the color of their skin and then fifty years later allowed to have a black man as the President of the United States of America.
I am proud that my black children now have a president that looks like them.
