THE EDGE OF HISTORY...


For a while, I’ve been BITTER, UNINTERESTED & CLOSED to the notion AND thought of Barack Obama becoming the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. My reasons were many and I am sure that there are MANY of you out that would agree with them on some level, but those don’t matter right about now. The ONLY thing that had me SO unmovable was the fact that the candidate that I was supporting (HILLARY CLINTON) had to be demonized AND vilified to justify why Barack should be the nominee. It hurt me SO much to see that things happened the way they did, but now I can say that it was for the best. I know that many may say NO, but it is MY opinion that Barack Obama wouldn’t have become the nominee if Hillary wasn’t who she is. I came to see her place in the whole scheme of things and I couldn’t agree with her anymore when she said that YOU HAVE TO BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED. That statement made sense to me AND it put things in perspective…CHANGE HAS COME TO AMERICA and I was foolish for wishing AND thinking that the OTHER party should win. Colin Powell said it best when he said, “I truly believe that at this point in America’s history we need a president who will not just continue...basically the policies we have followed in recent years,” “We need a president with transformational qualities.” For that reason, he said, “I will be voting for Barack Obama.” That statement along with Hillary’s showed me that I had it all wrong. I mean how could I NOT see the journey of this man that WILL takes us down a winding road of constant evolution? With him, we will be provided with a MULTITUDE of opportunities that can allow us to transform into our next best selves. And during these moments of awareness, WE can take that step to change. I am NO longer asleep to the truth behind the glass and NO matter what happens, I say that I BELIEVE…I BELIEVE
