History and How I feel about it.

I love the fact that we now have an African American President, but what interest me most about it is how we reached this point.My thoughts are simple to explain,we have(blacks/minorities)have worked really hard to earn our spot in politics, race relations ,the educational process, religion,sports, etc. Mr.President Obama has once again proven that it`s not (as Dr. King said in his famous I Have A Dream Speech)in the color of our skin but the content of our/your character. And the more we as a people across the racial spectrum continue to educate ourselves the stronger the good old U.S.A. will be because under the Bush adminstration we lost alot of respect from other countries and respect from ourselves so lets tighten our game up, so we can once again take our place back as the most powerful country in the world that we have been known to be. Thank You Mr. Bobby(A.K.A. scorpionbbb50)

Hey Bobby, This was a very emotional, historic day. Did you see the Queen of Soul all decked out in her "Sunday go to meeting" hat? This has been truly awesome, but bittersweet because many people I wish were here to witness this auspicious occasion are no longer with us. One teacher I know said that all of the people are rejoicing in the after life and cheering President Obama on!

True Pam as cookie said she wish momma and alot of others could have witnessed this as well it is truly a historic blessing to be a part of something so critical to hopefully the improvement of race relations,world/local politics yes our mothers are dancing in the heavens yes Ree..Ree..was decked out and little Stevie is`nt little anymore but hes always been one of my favorite musical activist, I think The Obomas` will make a great political team they looked so proud /happy about their acomplishment as the New President & First Lady.

When Obama first won the election last November, I was thinking how I wish that ma was alive to see this. The same thought ran through my mind this past Tuesday.
