Today I am proud to be an American. I am proud to live in country that now has it’s first Black President, the son of an immigrant, it’s First Lady, the Grand Daughter of Slaves, it’s Vice President the First Catholic Vice President, A Former First Lady soon to be Secretary of State. I am so proud.

But more importantly I am proud because Our President and Vice President, Secretary of State not only campaigned on change, but hit the ground running. They change started well before taking office. During the transition, they moved forward, addressing issues, building bridges, reaching out in every arena to bring us all together. They did not promise a rose garden, but they promised to do their best to turn things around. To end what was not working and to create more that would work.  

The Obama Presidency starts off facing a lot of issues, but the counrty has hope. I have hope. i beleive that times will improve, that we will become the America that we dreamed off. i finally see a real chance for Dr. King’s dream, Obama’s dream and I feel blessed.

How do you feel on this Historic Day?
