Take a look around today as we celebrate this incredible victory. Take a moment to think about who made this possible. Take a minute to reflect on the number of voices that shouted into this megaphone towards triumph, and the variety of persons that collectively made this hope a reality.
Caucasians, do not solely thank yourselves. It took a plethora of colors to make this happen. African-Americans, it was not solely you as a community that brought this man into power. It took a myriad of hands and faces to make this day possible. My point is, without each other we would never have prevailed. It took the courage of all of us to make this day happen. It took our conviction and courage to make this step towards erasing the ugly stains of prejudice from our country.
During the next few days, whenever possible, thank someone you know that took the time to vote and promote this new leader. We all did it, and without every color marching to the polls none of it would have been possible. Together we made it happen. We might want to take this recipe and make it a template for change in our world. Look what we can do when we work together!
