One Moment in Time: History in the Making…

Do you know where you were when this moment first happened? I do, I was where I am now with a front row seat (in front of my television that is) with my grandmother while my uncle barbecued. Yes, it was definitely something to be celebrated and even moreso four years later. This year it resonates with a different meaning and it could be because it has fallen on a day that celebrates hope and how far we all still have to go. As a black woman, I understand what this moment means for me and others who look just like me..and others who do not, but still have hope for a better tomorrow. My pastor said it best yesterday when he said that it was divine order and that made total sense to me. Everyone may not agree on the choice of who is to run the office or how well they do the job but we all have a responsibility to pull together to bring ourselves out from where we are. Seeing this all happens inspires me and lets me, and I hope others as well, that you can be anything you want you never have to settle for average. It also shows you that along the way people will fight you tooth and nail when you are trying to do what you feel is the right thing. No matter what this moment brings about hope for me and that is enough to be my driving force.
