Barack Obama is to be sworn in as our nation's first African-American president.
Just when it seems like no progress is being made as a society, along comes an event so monumental and progressive that it shatters all notion of stagnation.
I look in the face of each African-American person I see and feel a mutual sense of pride - that we truly are moving forward. That despite every setback we encounter, there really is something good happening in our time.
I have always felt that African Americans are owed an unpaid debt, written by the founders of our country - that ALL men are created equal and shall have Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Happiness. (Thank you Martin Luther King for fighting for the benefit of all humanity.)
No man is truly free unless we are all free.
So today, let me just say: Congratulations Barrack, Congratulations America.
For the first time, I feel like we are living in the future.
May we all work together to make this a more perfect union.
