Barack Obama Elected 44th President of the United States of America

Posted in A Day in the Life, Recession Proof Musician | No Comments »

What a historic moment! Last night, Barack Obama was elected as the 44th President of the United States!

I like the sound of that.

Let’s practice…President Barack Obama…President Obama…First Lady Michelle Obama…The First Michelle…

There’s so much I could write, but I’ll just let everyone have their day to dream about the future.

With Barack Obama being elected president, I have so much hope for our young black men especially, who need stronger and powerful male role models. With President-Elect Obama, it has been proven that anything is possible, and that we may all reach for the stars.

If Barack Obama can reach his goal of being elected President, then what does that mean for you and your dreams?

And may we never forget The Dream that helped us reach this historic day

Change has arrived.

Happy Election Day 2008! Vote Early! Vote Often! ;-)

Happy Election Day 2008, Folks! It’s 7:30am in the morning, and I’ve just voted!

My cousin, the poet MC Rebecca “Butterfly” Vaughns, has been supporting her Election Day choice through her haircut, which was featured in this month’s Double Issue of Jet Magazine (with Jennifer Hudson on the cover).

As you can see in both photos, Butterfly has had Obama’s face and slogan shaved into her lowcut afro by some barber artiste. Butterfly has always had designs shaved into her hair (such as a butterfly), and this time, she’s using her head to make a political statement.

This is better than a bumper sticker!

Wow, I voted early, and the lines moved quickly. Do you think I could go back and do that again? 😉

On a groundbreaking election day like today, I have to add the sage words that have been making their way around the web. Wish I knew who said it first, but I’m grateful to repeat:

Rosa sat so Martin could walk. Martin walked so Obama could run. Obama runs so our children can fly!

It’s Election Day. Rock Your Vote!
