A friend forwarded this to me in an email. I don’t know who wrote it, but I love it:

Rosa sat
so Martin could walk
Martin walked
so Obama could run
Obama ran
so our children could FLY!

I am so proud of my country right now. Proud of being part of this historic moment. Proud to tell my son that with determination and hope and courage, anything is possible.

  1. I love these words, i feel great happiness about what happned today!!! Even if i am not from the U.S.A. I feel it’s my president as well. I feel super happy and emotional!

  2. Thanks for sharing those words, no matter who wrote them. I still cry just thinking about what happened. Can’t wait to see what the future brings. I have a feeling it will be easier for me to create. I hope other artists are similarly affected.

  3. It’s been a couple of weeks, and I still have trouble believing it….The moment when Michelle and Malia and Sasha joined Barack on stage, seen in the first slide, I sat there watching the TV sputtering out to my friends in wonder “my god…that’s the first family….” Clearly, this country is capable of being far better than I’d realized, and, certainly, if we collectively can triumph over such a terrible history, what might I be able to triumph over in my own life?
