Today a New World starts

President Barack Obama

Today the World changes, today has been a long process, but one that I believe God will be smiling up on. Really it started with Rosa Louise Parks who is recognized as the "mother of the modern day civil rights movement" in America. Her refusal to surrender her seat to a white male passenger on a Montgomery, Alabama bus, December 1, 1955, triggered a wave of protest to December 5, 1955 that reverberated throughout the United States. Her quiet courageous act changed America, its view of black people and redirected the course of history.

Look who is in the background

Because of Rosa's brave stand and that of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Junior today Barack Obama will become the 1st Afro American President and 44th President of the United States of America. This is an amazing day and I pray that God will truly Bless, President Barack Obama, may God be with him and may God drive all of his decisions for the next 4 years.

I have high hopes today, a wonderful day that shouts in the face of evil and that of slavery and racism. The late Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks must be having a massive party in Heaven today....
