What A Great Week for America!!!!

I never thought I would live to see this happen. This week in America has been extraordinary. This is truly a special time in our American history.

After years of being put down, ridiculed, and abused; they finally elected one of "us" to the highest office in the nation. Growing up in the south, I experienced the discrimination, I felt the pain. As a child of the sixties, I witnessed the protests and the suffering. During the seventies, I lived through the pains of de-segregation. But praise be to God, they finally elected one of "us"!

My black friends have asked me, in kind of a hesitating way.....Mike.... aren't you really a whitey? The honest answer is yes, I am a whitey and I am also prone to bad sunburn in the summer. I have asked God personally, to ensure that in my next life I am taller, and have a darker complexion so that I can go out to the beach in the summer without getting fried.

Many of my white friends have asked me, also, in a kind of hestitating way.....Mike ....are you from a "mixed family"? My answer is "yes we were pretty mixed up like most families are but No, I was born a very poor white boy child, to very "white" parents. But I was born to be "cool". And I am still cool and getting cooler." And so is our new President, Mr. Barack Obama!!!!! Cool is Cool. We finally got a "cool" president". I believe that we got a good guy up front and reppin for us now. We're gonna be alright. I believe! Please Pray for our new President, Barack Hussein Obama, his family, and his administration.
Can I please get an "AMEN"?
God Bless America.
All the best,


  1. It has been so inspiring to me to watch all of this make its space in history. I believe. Change can happen, it may appear to have started with this election, but it really needs to start with each of us. Remember to do your good deed today and tomorrow too.
    much love.

  2. I think it is more than a little crazy that the entire country is literally worshiping him like he is some idol. He is just a man. Liberal, conservative, black, white.... He is just a man....He's been in office for 2 whole days! Let's just wait and see if he actually follows through with his lofty promises before we proclaim him to be the best president since Lincoln. Yes, I will respect him since he is the president of our country, but do I think he is the best thing since sliced bread? No.
