Our home and native...wait, wrong song.
I am no patriot and about as far from American as you can get. I don't follow, nor do I fully understand politics or the politicians that come with it.
But to be able to say that in my lifetime, not only have I seen a number of African-American men run for president, some with more success than others(Jesse Jackson), but that I lived to see a man of color elected President of the United States, judging by how glued I was to the screen and for it all to come full circle with Rev. Jackson breaking down - It meant more to me than I would have imagined.
Whether you're black, white, purple or green, Nov. 4, 2008 should mean something to everyone.
Congratulations to Mr. Obama - Mr. President Elect.
