inauguration was an awesome thing to watch. literally history in the making. although you can argue that every inauguration is history in the making, this one is very different and more significant. Obama has overcome so much to be where he's at. he is truly an inspiring person and not only because he's the first black president, but because of his ability to just BE. he graduated from Harvard, at the top of his class, and has achieved so much during his lifetime-- i am proud to say that he is our president.
i dont care if you're against him, but you can't really do anything now. he's been sworn in and its official. America has its first black president. and people are getting so upset because we are celebrating it like that. but i say, why not? it just shows how much America has done to overcome the barrier of RACE. and how much we've grown. racism hurts EVERYBODY. and racism has struck me too. and i'm tired of it. the story of Barack Obama has shown me that human beings are beginning to accept that it doesn't matter what color you are or who your parents were or whatever. if a black man can finally be president in this white-dominant country, i think an Filipino-American can finally top the billboard charts. what do you think?
before you argue with me, read about him, and read his story and i promise you'll be inspired. don't be close-minded just because he's something different from the norm. i believe that he's definitely going to change the world. and he will whether you agree with him being President of the United States or not.
sorry that i brought politics into this blog, its just that in my flo-ology class today, we were just flowing and talking about how we feel, and i just feel so good that somebody has overcome the idea that not everyone has to suck up to the white man in this world. we're our own people, but we all share one thing-- we're American. and i can definitely say that yesterday during the inauguration i was very Proud to be one. and hopefully now i can be everyday. because i know that America has come together to elect someone who they believed could bring change to this country, regardless of his race.
anyway, started a new video series. this one is 10 songs your parents probably know. "Classics" Video Series. 1 of 10. "As Time Goes By"
