Yesterday, was an amazing culmination of an impossible dream. I never thought in my lifetime that I would see this country as a whole unite behind a black man as its leader. In this dark time where our men face such a difficult climb and our women have been regulated to stereotypes, this is quite an achievement.
I don't want this blog to be too heavy, so that's all I will say on that subject.
But on a lighter note, I used to live no more than two blocks from Obama. Prior to going down this baby path, I lived in the cutest condo in the incredible south side, black middle class hamlit known as Hyde Park. President Obama and his family lived about two blocks from me (pretty sure my dog has done his business on the President's lawn :)).
