My President Is BLACK!

Ok, so CNN declared President Obama the winner like a half hour ago, and I just stopped crying. The first person I called was my Grandma, who grew up in Arkansas, and raised my father, aunt and uncles in Memphis during the 40's and 50's. We cried and laughed together, and congratulated one another for being able to take part in such a historic event.

I'll have more on this tomorrow, but I'm about to toast with my chicas, and watch PRESIDENT OBAMA address the crowd of adoring fans at Grant Park and on TV's across the world.

I'm not a Jeezy fan but uh.....MY PRESIDENT IS BLACK!!!! Praise God!

Girl, it's still so surreal to me. I didn't anticipate these lasting feelings (overwhelmed, hype, extremely hopeful). Yes, Jeremiah and Isaiah can really be president if they want to!
