I am so inspired, listening to Barak Obama. There is something in what and how he speaks that strikes a chord deep in me, very reminiscent of hearing Martin Luther King speak. Their inspirational words bring tears to my eyes every single time I hear them. I find hope, pride, love and equality there for a better country, people and self.
I am also struck by the quote “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” I feel it is time that we, as Americans to stand up for what is right and fair, from a place of love, not fear. I am happy to be “who we’ve been waiting for,” I can only hope I can live up to the challenge. Thank the Gods I was raised by open, loving parents who exposed me to an amazing, diverse group of people throughout my childhood in the midwest.
