Almost There


Well, it's been a long run...Tuesday will show the results. I went from feeling a rush of pride that a woman was running for the Presidency to the absolute certainty that we as a nation needed to elect Obama as our next President. Why, you might ask? Well, I'll tell you.
Our nation is made up of every nationality, race and color of our world. It only makes sense that in order to break away from the stigma of racism that has constantly enveloped our country at times...that a person of color be elected. To me it seems only fair.
I've really gotten angry at some of the statements that I have seen on line, in chat rooms - extremely nasty and actually unconscionable. Now, of course, I am not voting for him just because of that. Obama is an extremely intelligent, genuinely concerned for America's future. I believe he is our best bet to revive our sagging economy, end the war in Iraq, go after Bin Laden the right way and mend our fences around the world....I can't understand why so many people get so scared of change. Anyway, my angel is helping me say a prayer for Tuesday....

I hope he gets elected. My fear for him is assassination, that has bothered me for months now. The main thing if who is best for America. Colour, religion and everything else does not matter. It is time for change, time to embrace a new approach.

I didn't vote for him because of his race, either...but I think that electing him will go a long ways towards improving our image around the world, and healing the damage that has been done. I'm praying, too!
