Obama Wins

I wasn't an Obama supporter. And, I didn't vote for Obama. But, I am happy to be part of history. I'm happy to see that an African America can be voted in as President of the United States of America. In my mind this says a lot about the percieved racial tension versus the actual racial tension. I hate racism. Let me write that again. I hate racism! But even more, I hate people who falsely claim racism. You know who you are and you know what I mean.

I am happy for the millions of African American people who never in their lifetime thought that this could happen. My heart goes out to these folks. How happy they must be! Quite honestly I have my doubts about his Presidency but I hope that he'll prove me wrong. And while I may not have supported him prior to the election I will pray for our new President just like I have all the other President's prior to him. Good luck Obama!

Great post. I couldn't have said it better myself.

I haven't been an Obama supporter, but there is a small part of me that's excited to see how things will change, for better or worse.

I love the picture too.

Here, here! That is a great way to feel and I sure didn't think of it that way but now I will!

Thank you for this post . . . I feel the same way! America has spoken. It is what it is. I, too, will be praying for our new President, just as I have all the others.

We've come along way eh? There will be many on bended knee the next 4 years. I hope most of all... values and our freedom remain in tact. In God we trust!!

Food for thought...I read something the other day about supporting our troops and standing behind them. If that doesn't work for you then by all means stand in front of them.
