Today I stood in the shower and cried. Barack Obama is the president of the United States of America. When it happened last night I was too stunned to feel anything. I just could not believe it was true. I waited for the other shoe to drop. Barack Obama is the president. I know it's not about race, but for those of us who've been pulled over by the police, followed in the store, passed by because they could not possibly be the one in charge, looked at as the authority on everything African American just because you're African American...it is simply amazing. Barack Obama is the president.
Hope. I'd given up on some dreams, thinking they were out of my reach. No more. Barack Obama is the president. Yes, We Can he said and Yes, We Did.
And, yes, I can!
