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.
- Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance
- The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream (Vintage)
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.
