About the Black Man in the White House

9 Nov

Thank you for those warm wishes.  I can see you with all smiles, laughter and with displays of admiration.  We are so happy here at this historical time.  The election of the first ‘African-American/ visually multiply ethnic’ President is more than a breath of fresh air for many.  This is true especially for those who fought against ferocious dogs and water hoses and police brutality in order to get the American vote.  The suppressed breath for real citizenship has been exhaled.

~Email from a dear friend, a southern, African-American lady, who had to flee her state after marrying a white man in the ‘70s. She is now blind, but has the clearest insight of any person I know.

Also, jerk those tear glands here.
