Well, people it's a wrap! The longest campaign in history is over and history has been made!!
I spent the last couple of hours on my buddy Zack's blog, Go Zack where he had live chatting while we waited for the counting to be over. It was a great way to spend a few hours and it was fun!
So now the votes are tallied and the winner is ............
I never in my lifetime thought I would see this day! Barack Obama will be the 44th President of the United States. I sit here with my eyes all misty thinking about my history as an African American. Thinking about those who came before me and who even gave their lives for this struggle, like Sojourner Truth, Martin Luther King Jr., Frederick Douglas, W. E. B Dubois, Booker T Washington, Marcus Garvey, Harriett Tubman just to name a few. Those who shed blood, sweat and tears so that other generations could achieve the highest of heights.
Nights, like tonight show and prove that EVERY child can aspire to be and do ANYTHING they want to do!! As Martin Luther King Jr said, "little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character..."
This is the most monumental and historical night of my lifetime to date. I just hope that people realize; America needed and wanted a change so they elected Barack Obama, who will not be the President for black people but the President of all the people of the United States!
