Expressing Appreciation for the Presidency of Barack Obama
By Terri Mae Owens
As an African American Woman, I could not be prouder of the way President Obama and First Lady Mrs.Michelle Obama lead this country from 2008- 2016, and during their final days in 2017.
Watching the President and First Lady love, and express kindness and concern for the general health and well being of the citizens of this country, as well as for people around the world, in spite of harsh criticisms and personal attacks on their humanity, has inspired me to live my life by their example of taking the high road.
They have inspired me to not be complacent in my position as a citizen of this country, but to find ways to reach out to others, especially those who do not look like me, by using my gifts and talents as a human being, a historian and as an artist, to inspire unity, and effect positive change that helps to strengthens race relations in our country.
America belongs to all of her citizens, and in spite of the racist rhetoric expressed during the campaigning of President Elect Donald Trump, I am encouraged by knowing that regardless of race or religious affiliation, as citizens of this great country, that there are more of us that are unified in fighting to protect for all citizens, the freedoms and rights we value and hold dear as citizens of this great country, than those who are divided.
I am Looking forward to seeing how the Obama family continue using their experience and influence to help build an even more perfect union.
