President Barack Obama!

I cried.

We've elected the first African American (literally) President of the United States of America into office. January 20, 2009. The day after MLK Day.

About 3 years ago, my mother and I were lamenting over the state of Black folks. We couldn't see any hope that the tide would turn for our race in terms of education, self image, self dignity, and self expectations. Right in the midst of hopelessness I said, "God can solve it. I don't know how. I don't know exactly when, but we'll see a change real soon. We've got to have something major happen to get on track. I'm just interested to see what God will do. I know he hasn't forgotten about us!"

Once again... Thank you, God. :-)
