President Obama!

When the announcement came across, husband and I both got tears in our eyes and goosebumps on our skin. We never thought we would live to see an African-American President, and here we are, 2008 and it is possible.

It gives me hope. Just as our African-American brothers and sisters are celebrating tonight, I hope that other groups will celebrate their total equality in my lifetime. This gives me hope for all races as well as for gays, lesbians and bisexuals, transgenders, transsexuals and genderqueers.

We are slowly moving towards that idealistic vision of a united race: the human race.

Gods bless, I hope that this brings a little happiness to everyone tonight.
