I wish I was in Grand Park Last Night

November 5th, 2008 · No Comments

I rarely talk about about politics and I’m not affiliated with any political parties. But, I’m very proud to be American at this moment of our history.

I lived in Chicago for two years. It was one of my favorite cities in the world. I wish I was at Grand Park last night. My eyes were glued to TV last night. I shed my shares of joyful and proud tears.

I’m an immigrant. I’m grateful that an African American candidate with a foreign father won the election. He was raised by a single mother and later by  his grandmother. He was completely a self-made man. He is one of us.

Obama’s speech last night was eloquent, touching, and inspiring.

The first thing this morning I did was to get Obama’s books — I want to learn more about this amazing man by reading his own words. If you haven’t, you should pick these two books NOW.

To quote Mark Cuban, "I’m Bullish on America.".

Depression 2.0 is going to be brutal. More layoffs will be coming. Life could get a lot harder. But, we can do it. We’ll change for better.
