Inauguration day! I understand why African Americans are so excited, it is a great day to see how far America has come, however I hope they are not disappointed because Barack Obama is not just black, he's young, he's multi-racial, he's global, he's technologically savvy. I don't think he's here to make thing right for black people- he's definitely a new generation of president, a president for the younger generation, and I for one am happy to have him. Maybe we can finally make some progress/

The portrait to the right was made by Elizabeth St. Hilaire and it is my understanding it is available on ebay. To see more of Elizabeth's work check out this link http://elizabethsthilairenelson.blogspot.com/2009/01/rays-of-hope-on-ebay.html . I especially love the roosters!
