How many of us ever believed that an African-American would be President within our lifetime? If nothing else, the election of Barack Obama shows the world that America is the land of opportunity. Mr. Obama represents much more than the sume of his parts, it is the culmination of a long struggle for justice for all minorities in this country. And that is a sruggle that many of us are familiar with, whether it is the color of your skin, the church you attend, or even the size of your waist. Bravo America!
