The First Black Inaugural
Someone on AOL Black Voices posted a fantasy about the First Black Inaugural, supposing what would transpire if those who have passed on were guests at this prestigious and historic event. Of course Reverend Doctor King and his wife Coretta, along with EL-Hajj Malik Shabazz (Malcolm X) and Betty Shabazz. What about Frederick Douglass and Rosa Parks? How proud would individuals who fought the good fight be to know that the impossible is now conceivable and we have our first African American President Elect? I know I never envisioned anyone looking like Barack Hussein Obama ever residing in the White House in my lifetime and I am so glad I lived to see it. How I wish my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins who have gone before me could be at that inaugural. To read the article in its entirety Click Here.
When asked what I am thankful for this year at Thanksgiving, President Obama will be at the top of the list! One of my adolescent clients asked me if I had a crush on Obama because he appears on my blog so much and the answer is yes! I know he only has eyes for Michelle and that's cool ;-) Please join me in wishing him and his family love and peace in these changing times.
