Recently my friend wrote a bucket list and advised me to do the same. One of the ten items on my list is to witness a miracle. I didn't expect it to happen so soon, but I think I did witness a miracle on November 4th when Barack Obama became president elect. Never in my lifetime did I imagine an African American to be president. I wanted to believe that it was possible, but going through every day life, seeing the lives of my people, where we've been and where we've come from it didn't seem to be a realistic dream. We've been disappointed and rejected so many times. Now, I am truly hopeful. I am proud. And there are no more excuses. Finally!
