This Is It: VOTE

For any African Americans who haven’t voted yet, I have only these words from the song “This Is It” by Kenny Loggins. Mind you, they’re out of context – they deal with Loggins’ dad’s failure to fight a debilitating illness head-on – but they do apply in this context:

For once in your life, here's your miracle
Stand up and fight
This is it
Make no mistake where you are
This is it
You're going no further
This is it
Until it's over and done

Vote. As African Americans, we are accountable for today’s presidential outcome – not only to our ancestors, but to the generations to come.

Vote.

We did it! Now it's time for the real work to begin. Love your blog. I just started reading it. I've decided that you're one of my she-ros.

Why thank you, SpeakSister! You've inspired me to do a better job of keeping up my blog.

Yes, the real work begins, and it begins with us, not President Obama. Each of us is tasked with doing at least one small thing to ensure his success and the resurgence (moral, economic and otherwise) of the nation. If I could, I'd help load up the Bushes' stuff on a U-Haul and drive it myself to Crawford! I'm so excited for this new era to begin.
