Of a nation built
on the backs of a race
and a race won
on the back of a nation

Today,
a time in history when
we give THANKS
to our elders,
the marching leaders,
non-violent fighters
and silent movers
of Civil Rights’ barricade.

Today,
a time in history when
we say THANHS
to our elders,
the ones that
shed their multicultural blood
in our precedent
and on our path
to this day.

America voted and spike
to a world that listened
hearing our united cry
Multicultural blend of patriotism
believes in a gentleman
reflected in our skins
and ideals.

Our new leader
a dreamer that believed
we could
and
YES! WE DID!
because we counted…
we were a part of his
story and he is a part of
ours
a history being told as it is written
spoken to our children
with a broad future
Yes, we can!
Tes, we can
become anything together
as King dreamed
and we now sing.

Gratitude

      I agree. We went from Obama to a disorganized and chaotic Hell.
