God Bless America

Yes I stayed up! We all stayed up watching coverage of the Election. We laughed, we cried (I cried and he laughed at me) lol, we dougied. I know we are Bammas, right? But I am a proud American right now! Tonight was clear that democracy can work. Our votes were cast and our voices heard.

TWO TERMS!!!! (Sorry) Black People we got 4 more years! Lol! Not saying that because I feel entitled to anything just because he is black. But for the fact he is the First Black President and now he is the First Black President to serve 2 terms. A Force to be reckoned with, a man with a dream, a man with a purpose. Disliked for wanting us all to succeed. Voting for me was important because of my children. The decisions we make now will have the largest impact on our future. It is our responsibility to pave the road for them to live out their American Dream. Now it’s time for us all to come together, to do our part as American citizens to help not just ourselves but our country succeed. Our Ancestors are probably looking like that scene in Barbershopwhen Jimmy and Isaac were beefing then somebody turned on Marvin Gaye and everybody started dancing. So I’m celebrating but not bragging because we have alot of work ahead of us. That’s right WE! President Obama was not alone in reclaiming his seat and we cannot abandon him throughout his second term. We must stand and fight with him. Support him and the best interests for our country and our future. So with that said, God Bless America!!!

Lets ALL make these next 4 years count!

I remember reciting this poem as a child and it is still relevant today.

I, Too, Sing America
by Langston Hughes

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

Tomorrow,
I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”
Then.

Besides,
They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America.
