Election 2012

I feel the United States has finally passed the milestone I’ve been waiting for my whole life. No longer is the American Dream only available to white upper class males. No longer do white upper class men hold all the power over the rest of us. Each of us has a choice. We can resist the reality of the present and future by stubbornly clinging to the wrongs of the past, or we can embrace the diversity which is the strength of this country and move into the future with confidence. I choose the latter. May those of the former persuasion find the grace and serenity to let go of the past and move forward with us. May we all accept the things we cannot change, (e.g., we are made of diverse and equal cultures, races, and religions) change things for the better for all where we can, and recognize the difference. “None of us is as smart as all of us.” (source unknown)
