And it is. I am so happy that we elected for leadership of our nation an upstanding, diplomatic, charismatic, and - as far as i can tell - genuinely concerned, black man. Racism is among the ugliest of vices, and our nation has made a huge step in the right direction by looking past color of one's skin into the heart of an individual. The fact that this is a bit of a big deal just goes to show that we're still working past our differences, but the point is, we are working past them.
history in the making.
I'm proud of my nation, and though I come from a staunch Republican background, I'm proud of my new President as well. I see bright things in the future - this is going to be something our children and grandchildren learn about.
