We NAILED it~!

November 4th 2008, will forever be etched in my mind, heart and soul! We NAILED it! Barack Obama 44th President Elect of the U.S.of A~! Can you believe it! I was ecstatic and elated to be a part of history in the making. My President is Black. He is a reflection of our struggle and our progress, our strengths and our weaknesses, our perseverance and determination. My stride is a little swifter, my steps that more meaningful. I walk with my head held higher, a different sense of pride. To feel the pain and joy of what we have endured as a people and the challenges that we will continue to face all in one day was absolutely phenomenal. To be able to share this moment with my parents and my aunts and uncles who have all known first hand how racism can rear its ugly head.

To see the tears of triumph stream down their faces and to hear the voices and cries of freedom is breathe taking. I have always been proud of who I am, and on that day and on this day as I write this I am enlivened, enriched and inspired to do better. To be better. To make my mark in history. To always say YES I CAN, because YES WE DID and YES WE WILL~!


P.S. And Ms. Eve nailed it too with her ultra fab nail design by Minx Nails of the President elect. Visit to learn more about the brand and the creative duo behind Hollywood's latest fad.
