Can't let today pass

MY President took the oath of office today. Yes, he may be the President of the entire country but today I feel as though he belongs to me. I have defended him to some members of my family that think he will ruin our nation. I have watched with immense pride as my two oldest sons voted for the first time in their lives. I am very rarely wrong in summing up an individual based on many traits and this man has scored very high on my class meter. I think he is smart. I think he is confident. I think he will effect the change that is so desperately needed to turn our country back into the country that other nations admire and not jeer. My President, if given a chance to prove himself to the naysayers, will without a doubt, be historical, and not just because of his race.

Yeah, but that inaugural poem really sucked. There was no mention of the "man from Nantucket"!

Ahem, but haven't they noticed your country is already in a mess? Mmm, under whose watch did that happen?

amen sistah....
so if you saw me and heard me say that you'd think, 'stop she can't pull that off' but in print it looks pretty good...i can't do the z snap either without laughing and looking like a goof ball...anyhoo

i'm thinking, you're right it's not a black thing...he's not there because he's black he's not there despite being black...he's an incredible PERSON who has a vision, he'd be there no matter what his color was or even gender because of who he is...

the black thing though is a bonus in that it does show how far our country has come and the historical significance...did i just ngeate my former statement

well that's my take on it.
