Yeah, We Did
And so, Barack Obama is the President of Our United States.
My little bourige baby sleeps away as the world is changing around her, hopefully for the better. A future that I never thought possible in my own lifetime. Just as my parents grew up in a Jim Crow south and only wanted their children to receive a great education; now, as a mother, I want my child to not only have a great education but to no longer employ the same excuses, stereotypes, and mental roadblocks of why they can't. Yes, they can and they will! Our Nation is at its finest moment and we must not let those that muddle in fear, steep in hate, and lash out in willful ignorance destroy the restored pride and hope we have in our country.
Yeah, we did!
