Yes We Can!!......Yes We Did!
I cannot express the joy that I feel right now! In all honesty, as a black woman I never expected to see a black man as president of the United States in my lifetime. And that's truth be told. So the fact that he is actually in there does my heart some good. Now, everything that was said, the absurd/offensive commentary, the ridiculous and , often times, ignorant rumors..... are nothing to me but fleeting memories.
When 11 o'clock hit and I heard the commentator say that we would be hearing the patter of small feet in the White House -- that was it for me!
Yes We Can!..... Yes We Did!
I laughed. I cried. I'm good.
What about you?.. Where were you?.. What did you do?....
