A Great Day

What a historical day... a man of color becomes the 44th President of the United States today, and it happens that yesterday was Martin Luther King Jr.'s Day. If Martin Luther King is still alive, he would be so happy and proud to see that his dream of racial equality finally comes true. And only 60 years ago, people of color — blacks, Hispanics, Asians — were still discriminated against in many ways.

Here in Hawai`i, we all love the Obama family. We are very excited to see new changes within our country and for the rest of the world. We know it's a tough time now for Barack to take office, but we are hopeful and we have faith in him and his administration that things will get better. It obviously won't happen overnight, but I know things have to get better and if we can all do just a little bit to help make this a better country and a better world, then hopefully there will be less violence and hatred. I am very proud to be an American. God Bless America!
