I've just finished watching Barack Obama be the 44th man to take the Presidential Oath. He now is officially THE MAN to turn around America and re-affirm our nation's greatness.
He's got a lot of things to accomplish in America to bring the change he has promised. The economic, housing, energy and school crises that are gripping the country now, are and will be, his biggest challenges. He has the opportunity to become the greatest President in our history.
A black man in office, how fitting on the day after we celebrated one of the most influential individuals. Ever. Regardless of race.
I was watching ESPN this morning and Harrison Dillard, an individual whom I was super excited to meet in Beijing, was featured and interviewed during a segment. To hear our older legends speak about today's events is something else. He said what a lot of older blacks say, that he never thought he would live to see a black man in office, now that's happened. Barack epitomizes his slogan of "Change, Progress and Hope".
By the way, he's left handed too, just like me. He will do great!
