Change You Can Believe In

Barack hasn't won yet, but his campaign alone has been a victory for change you can believe in. Only 52 years ago, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus. Soon, Barack Obama may sit in the most powerful seat in the United States of America.

Although I understood the significance of this day in the months leading up to the election, the gravity of the situation didn't hit me until today. In our parents' lifetimes, they have gone from seeing segregation in America to possibly seeing an African American take the Oath of Office. No matter what your politics, that's change you can believe in.

If you already believe Barack is the change we need, you'll shed a tear when you watch the following video. I did. I never thought I'd live to see this day, but I'm glad I have. I wish Obama's grandmother had lived to see this day, but as my mom told me last night, "She has the best seat in the house."

Madelyn Dunham, you raised an amazing grandson and helped to change history with your care and love for ONE MAN. That's love you can believe in.

Barack 08. VOTE TODAY. As far as elections go, there is no tomorrow.
