The Day of Rememberance

January 20, 2009 marks a new historical moment in a American history as our nation's first Black president Barack Obama is worn into office as the 44th president of the United States of America, bring true meaning to the word United. It seems so surreal to me. I never thought in a million years, like so many others that I would be alive to witness this day. Words cannot express the joy and pride I truly feel to be an American on this day.

To see all the different nationalities and religions come together on this day to celebrate this momentous occasion was a wonderful sight and as our newly elected president Obama gave his Inaugural speech, I became teary eyed filled with hope and optimism.

We all know that he has a tough road ahead of him regarding the economy, health care and the environment to name a few of the problems he will face in office but I truly believe that he has the American people's best interest at heart. Therefore, before it's all said and done we all will witness a greater, stronger and truly united America!!!

So to all of the fashionistas, fashionable people and Americans everywhere, here's to our 44th president, President Barack Obama!!!
