On January 20, 2009 I was one out of the millions of people who stood on the Washington Monument and Capitol steps on the frigid January morning and one out of the millions of people across the world who witnessed history. The History of the first African American President sworn into office and the first African American family to reside in the White House. We all shared that January morning, the hope and the promise of a new and bright future for our great country. What warmed me that cold January morning was the example you set for our youth, and the mental barriers that were destroyed in minorities in the United States and across the world. You have shown our youth that through hard work, perseverance, and a good education they can do and be anything they imagine!
After that wonderful day, you set off to start your administration. Despite all the politics, punditry, and ignorance, you are still accomplishing your objectives and goals. When you were fighting for health care they said it could not be done, they said it was destroying your Presidency, but you signed into law. They said financial reform could not be done, but it's going to be signed into law. Thank you Mr. President for showing our youth that no matter what people say, no matter the obstacles, or what is thrown at you, if you have a dream or a goal you go get it period!
Thank you for the examples Mr. President, keep up the great work, and keep inspiring the youth, our country, and the world!
