As I listen to Sen. Obama I am filled with pride. He represents a viable candidate who also happens to be African-American. I love the fact that he talks about change and hope. He inspires crowds and people just feel good, but now is the time to get more specific. I believe in hope, but I want to know how are we going to facilitate change. It is time to start talking about the things that effect everyday Americans. The Bible says “Faith Without Work is Dead’. This new America is going to take real commitment and real work. Hopefully, the impressive crowds will actually vote in November and between now and then we will all know how we will take the concept of hope and make it applicable to the lives of all Americans.

Growing up my parents always told us you can be anything that you want to be. The key to doing this was to work hard. This was truly a statement of hope. Growing up I saw people of color achieve a lot of things, but I have not yet seen a black president of the United States. That is what makes this election year so exhilerating…the possibility. To see a viable candidate embraced by people of all color gives me hope. Hope for the future, hope for this country and especially hope for my children. I was discussing this with a co-worker this morning and we both are so inspired by what we see happening. Even if Senator Obama does not win the nomination he has restored my faith in the system. He is the living example of hard work and staying true to your principles, and others will also see the great possibilities in you. I have not been this excited about a candidate in years. I will continue to tell my children what my parents told me–you can be anything you want to be, but I will add this statement-including the President of the United States.
