Four years ago as A and I watched the DNC and were introduced to Barack Obama, we, like many others, said, next president of the United States. We were moved by him, but honestly, the lack of a Black man (or shall I say person) ever coming close to a successful bid for presidency overshadowed those feelings.

Today we vote. We have a chance to (positively) impact the future of our country and how we treat our global citizens. Our son may will grow up knowing the year he was born, was the year that a great many American folk rose above the racism so deeply ingrained in our society, and voted for the most qualified candidate.

It’s going to happen. Change is coming to us folks. GO VOTE!
