Today marks a great day in American history. The nation’s first black President is sworn in and every forward thinking American hopes to move into a post-racial society. The election and swearing in of Barack Obama means so much to so many people. To this American, I hope that it means our country can finally get over whatever happened hundreds of years ago and that we can move into an era of judging people based on the content of their character and not the color of their skin.
Frankly, I think we’re there already. Some people just needed a symbol and today they get that symbol. It’s time to make waves in this country again!
