I'm wondering if people realize that our next president is not, in fact, black...nor is he full-blooded African-American...he's bi-racial. His mama was/is Caucasian. And his father is not African-American. He's African. Let's get this straight people!!! However, historically, he is the first bi-racial president in office. And yes, I consider that to be historical...and that's about it.
Here's something my mom shared with me from someone she heard yesterday. Apparently a speaker made a statement about thinking about what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s reaction would be when he learned that people voted for the color of a person's skin and not his character. I believe the speaker my mom heard surmised that it would set back all of the work that Dr. King strove for...where it's not the color of a person's skin but who they are that counts. Personally, that's what Mark and I had discussed earlier...we didn't notice his skin color but what he said (and mostly what he didn't say) he would do as president.
We're praying that God would work to protect and lead our family and our country during these next four years...and of course, since He is Sovereign, His will will be done, no matter who's in charge of our our country.
'Nuff said about this election. Feel free to stop reading my blog if you must or just send comments my way (remember they're moderated...my blog/my prerogative).
