Man and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnifiecnet mall and why a man whose father less than sixty years ago might not have been served in local resturants can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath.

It's offical. Barack Obama is offically the 44 President of the United States, and is the first African American man to be elected president which is the top historic event to have occured. Who ever thought that the day would come when the world would see a Black man in the White House? To think his late father probably had to use drink out of dirty water fountains and couldn't eat at certain resturants because of the color of his skin. Now he's made history by taking up residence in the White house, where he, his beautiful wife Michelle, daughters and mother-in-law for the next four years (hopefully they'll extend their stay for an additional four years) and be working on making this world a much better place. We do expect him to proved jobs, affordable housing and health care, but he has to clean up the mess that Bush left while his lazy ass was in the white house for the past eight years.

I feel great to have been a part of history for the second time. Almost twenty years ago, I voted for the first time, and my first election I took part in was when former Manhattan President David Dinkins was running for Mayor, and I'm proud to say that with my vote counting, he became the first Black Mayor of New York City in 1989. Last year, I witness history again when I voted for Obama and seeing him being sworn in makes me proud to be part of the solution and part of history, and I'm looking forward to seeing him work hard to make this world a better place to live in.
Blacks have come a long way from picking cotton and berries; many have fought for us to have the right to vote, get nice jobs, attend college and have equalities, and while life hasn't been all peaches and cream, we need to be grateful for the opprotnuites we have, and all we have to do is lend Obama are love, prayers and support because he has alot of work ahead of him and with the love and support he receives from us, he will make a change in the world.
