The moment we've been anticipating has finally arrived. I stood in line at the polls with my mother and my brother, waiting for 7am to finally come. As I punched the circles on my ballot, I had a tingly sensation running thru my whole body. For the first time since this election began, I felt hope and possibility...maybe justice will prevail this time around. As I looked at the many faces standing with their children, friends and spouses I felt a sense of pride...this was history in the making. I felt my grandmother, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, JFK, Tupac looking down on me smiling. I know they didn't expect to see a Black Presidential Canidate in their time...hell I didn't expect to see one in my time and here we are. It was because of their blood, sweat and tears that made this day possible.
As I wait for my cousin to get off work early to vote, I'm continuing to keep my newfound faith in a system that has done us wrong so many times and my faith in God because he is the truth and light. Don't be disenfranchised...VOTE!!!!
