Being a witness to history.

I have spent most of my life reading about history it is one of my favorite subject. Each time I have asked myself I wonder what it was like to be there. Well this time I do not have to ask because this time I am here. When the roll call for President went up in the convention center I was not prepared for my emotions to come out, but when the Mississippi delegation cast their vote and the presenter mentioned Fannie Lou Hammer I just started crying. It was not that long ago when Ms. Hammer had to fight her way into the convention and said the famous words " I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. "

Therefore the fact that we nominated today an African American goes beyond the wildest dreams of many of us. I wonder is that what Dr. King meant when he said I have been to the mountain top and I have seen the promised land. Did he know that this was the mountaintop? I am not sure perhaps he knew that the mountain top was in reach.

Way to go Hillary Clinton

Ms. Clinton hit a homerun yesterday and her speech was brilliant. I think she set the tone for Biden and Obama to not only bring unity to the party but to invite others from other parties to vote for this winning ticket as well.

I know there is great speculation about Bill Clinton but I believe he will leave where Hillary left off.

Here is to a great start for the Obama/Biden team on the road to the White House.
