Getting Over the Past.

Many people use the adage "an image is worth 1000 words," but rarely is that truer than this:

So, Mr. Obama, whatever people may say, I say thank you. Thank you for the hope you have inspired in me and my circle, and in the unifying force that hope will bring. May it drift into the deepest corners of our nation and into the most backwards of backwoods. May we once again become a United States of America and bridge the racial gap once and for all.


A Grateful and Believing Citizen

And to first my wife and secondly my friends:

Thank you for staying with me long enough to get my own head out of those backwoods.

I just want to say...I appreciate you and your progress as a human being and your progress as a person. In the short time that I have known you...the strides in life you have made are amazing. All of us should realize that we have to make ourselves a better person every day. We can't take days off. We as a people will never become who we are supposed to be if we only try every other day. It is hard. It took me 23 years to become a decent human being but I still have to work at it. If everyone made an effort, an actual effort every day to better themselves as accepting and loving human beings...we could be the greatest nation in the world again. Mexicans kick ass!
