I Do Believe In Change

In no little part because of the love and pride I just saw in Bill Clinton's eyes and because of the satisfaction and gratitude I just saw in Michelle Obama's eyes. Hillary Clinton is right, we have a hard road ahead of us. I believe that the only way to begin that change is to have faith in a man who has faith in us. Not a man who has great wealth. Not a man who has great power. A man who has great vision and the optimism that has propelled him to keep up the fight against steep odds. A man who knows what it is like to be a minority in your own country. A man who knows that if you want something you have to earn it. While I may not agree with everything Barack Obama believes, I have faith in his vision and ability to make this country a better place for us and to build the beginnings of a better future for those who will come after us. I believe that a fundamental change in how we see ourselves, our place in this world and the way we deal with our global neighbors is the only way to move forward.

Happy Birthday Gramma and Aunt Doris. I love you and miss you *^_^*
