Condolences to Barack Obama on the passing of his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, in Hawaii.

It's sad that she cannot witness his success in winning the presidential race tomorrow. (I am an optimist.)

Earlier today, I read [livejournal.com profile] txvoodoo 's most recent entry in her journal in which she said this:

A moment of zen  

I was listening to NPR on my drive home—-they were interviewing some black people about election, economy and all.

One man said he got a text msg encouraging him to vote, and it said "Rosa (Parks) sat so Martin Luther King could walk. MLK walked so Obama could run. Obama is running so our children can fly."

I got all weepy.


A few minutes later, I went to Salon.com to read Garrison Keillor's weekly entry. Both [livejournal.com profile] txvoodoo  and Garrison Keillor touched upon what electing Mr. Barak Obama is all about. It is to allow the descendents of American slaves to accomplish what every human being should have a right to accomplish and to finally erase the necessity to add the adjective that describes our looks. A person should be judged for what he or she accomplishes, not what she looks like.

The thought of replacing the Current Occupant with the Angry Old Man of the Desert and Whoopee the Ice Queen is miserable in the extreme. )
