Oh Happy Day

Yes we can, and yes we did! A change is here, hope has a new face and the future is now. I am still reeling over the history making victory of Barack Obama being elected as the first black President of the United States of America.
Although we as a people (black people) are experiencing a sense of euphoria over witnessing this historic event, for me, and I think I speak for most in saying that this is absolutely not about skin color, but as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said in his "I Have A Dream" speech, it's about the content of his character.
Barack Obama ran a pristine campaign. He stayed on target, he did not stoop to name calling and mud slinging, and he spoke to the needs of the American people offering a plan to heal a hurting nation. I believe he will be a great president, and I hope you will join me in praying for him and his family over the next four years (and beyond) as he leads us in the right direction. Praise the Lord, and God Bless America.
