a dream deferred?

what happens to a raisin in the sun? does it dry up like a dream deferred?

on this MLK day 2009 I am unable to pass up the opportunity to comment on all that has gone on in this country in the last year. yes, this is a beauty blog but I would be remiss if I did not comment on the signifigance of the next two days.

Its funny to see so many people so upset because tomorrow Barack Obama will be the 44th President of the USA. Is it because he's black? All of those who swear up and down that they are not racist, that they "know black people and have black friends", ask yourselves why are you really mad? Is it that McCain could do such a better job with this country or is it because the other guy is a black man?

It is 2009 people, its time to let it go. Move on. No one man is better than another regardless of race, creed, color or religion. Let the man do his job and then make a decision about if this was the best choice. Because like it or not, this is going DOWN!!!

Personally I am ecstatic. I can look at my little girl and tell her with the full conviction and honesty of a parent, that she can be ANYTHING she wants to be. That makes my heart swell with pride and joy. It's heartbreaking as parent to think that your child has limitations, and that the public will place limitations on them just by looking at them.

I feel truly blessed to know that our little girl has a chance because America finally decided to CHANGE.

Thank you to all who voted and want to see a better and brighter America. Not only for ourselves but for our children.

Thank YOU Dr. King for having a dream and believing that one day it will be a reality.

I can only hope we have made you proud.
