Our 44th President

It's official: our 44th President will be Barack Obama! I have purposely avoided politics on this blog, but I have to say I am very pleased with this news. I can only hope that having our first African-American President will set the stage for a future where race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation will no longer be dividing setbacks in defining what an American is, for we are all human beings first and deserve equal treatment, regardless of our differences. Only then can we truly call ourselves Americans. Change is the one constant in life that cannot be stopped. Welcome to Change.

This is an amazing result not only for America but for the world!

Nov. 4 was a happy day for this country. It was slightly tarnished, however, by the passage of Prop 8 in CA. Most states now have constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriage. Two steps forward, one step back.
