A New Day
This morning when I was overjoyed when I turned on the news to discover that Obama is our new President. I really think this is the change that America needs to get our great country back on track. I think that he has a hard job ahead of him, but I think he is the man for the job. I think he can unite America and together we can bring this nation to its former glory.
I am proud of the fact that America has overcome racial issues that once separated us. I can remember as a child going to vote with my mother at our local polling place that was once a "colored" schoolhouse. My mother often told me of the separation of whites and blacks in her school years. She never agreed with it and made it very clear to us. She would have been proud to have been able to see this day in history if she were still alive today.
