I'm taking a route I probably wouldn't normally take today and I'm going to blog about that ever so sensitive subject. Politics. Now, I don't want to get deep into it, but as a young woman who has only within the last 4 year has taken an interest in the political world, I do want to touch on the subject. All of you out there have different opinions. Some may agree with my own, some may not. But for me, that's the beauty of our country. We don't have to always agree.
The other night, I watched the Democratic Convention, the first night where Hillary delivered a breath taking speech about President electee, Barack Obama. I have to say that I was disappointed that he didn't choose Hillary as his running mate because I felt the two would have made a great team. She spoke eloquently and positively about Obama and his ability to run our country and address the changes that are needed to get the US back on track.
On last night, Sen. Barack Obama formally excepted his position as VP electee, a proud moment in history, as this was the first time a black man has been nominated to be the President of the United States. A proud moment as it was also the 30th Anniversay of the "I Have A Dream" speech delivered by none other than the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. A sign that there has been great growth within our country and we have surely come along way.
On today, McCain announced that his running mate is, get this, A WOMAN! Imagine that.
For me, this is extremely exciting. The possibilities that a Black man could become President or a woman ,a mom like myself, could become VP shows great change in our world. I, for one, am proud of what our country is accomplishing and today I can say that I am proud to be an American.
