Real change comes to America! What it means to me.
It excites me knowing there is a new day, a new era dawning upon all of us that will light a better future for our children, and theirs. This also can mean a fair shot is given to those who truly deserve it. A larger pool has been created to pick the best of the best regardless of race, color, or creed.
The feeling is indescribable when I think of Obama as our President-Elect. Days after the election, I still wake up overjoyed just thinking about his victory with Michelle by his side and little Sasha and Malia having a new front lawn to play on. It only saddens me to know that my dear Mom-Mom and Nana Sampson couldn’t be here to witness it on earth. I know they’re watching and smiling down from above.
For my own personal reflection, I really feel Obama’s win has also changed me for the better. It’s pushing me harder to see one of my own dreams come to fruition – seeing my photos in a major magazine someday!
There’s much to be done! And I’m ready to work.
p.s. Below are photos from election day. I asked my sister to snap the ones of me getting ready to make a difference. I wanted to get photos of the expected “voting lines” as well, but there were none. Hey, it was 6.30am and I’m living in a rather small town – Atlantic City.
The rest of the photos are from the following morning at “The Civil Rights Garden.” Went for a peaceful stroll and self reflection.
I am so excited about the next four years with Barack!
