OBAMA:YES WE DID!
YES WE CAN...NO,YES WE DID! I'm am truly thankful to have had the opportunity to vote in this election. I feel like I'm apart of history now. This was the most important election for me and African Americans across the nation. Not saying that we as a people voted for him just because he was black because statistics show otherwise, but because our forefathers faught so hard for an opertunity like this. This is more evidence that our forefathers blood, sweet and tears weren't in vain. From times of slavery, all the way up to Dr. King and cival rights, none of it was in vain. I remember growing up , we didn't beleive it was possible to have a black president and now its finally here. And we couldn't have a better representative for our people and our country. Barack Obama is a great man. I can proudly say he is my president. A lot of people couldn't say that with previous presidents. I feel like when i grow old I can have a story to tell my kids and grand kids.
