I will write an article honoring the History making day on July 27, 2012, the opening of the London Olympics. Michelle Obama was a catalyst to this sea change of a moment in history.
The world lifted itself onto a new level of civilization. Fifty years ago, no one could have imagined a Black person (representing all minorities or the governed in the world) would be honored in this fashion. Of course, to bring about this change, every race, faith and ethnicity has worked on it.
I am feeling great to live and see this era of human history. It was so beautiful to see Michelle Obama being treated well, mostly with their hearts. I felt so good about America, as I have written elaborately, God’s own country (video -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMXsTo4VYh8&feature=youtu.be )
I am proud of America with all humility of doing the right things, despite the difficulties; we have paved the way for a pluralistic society, where every one can be himself or herself.
A UK magazine had published over 500 pictures of hers being with the Queen, Athletes and other dignitaries, normally I don’t see that many pictures, but I did, she represented a change in the world, a new level of civility. On November 4, 2008, Obama choked the world as well as me, and tears of joy rolled down my cheeks. http://mikeghouseforamerica.blogspot.com/2008/11/president-obama-choked-me-with-tears.html
To a few, just a few of my fellow Republicans; get over the petty politics and appreciate the good things of life no matter where it comes from, which religion, what race or which ethnicity or nationality. Good things are good things. My republicanism does not diminish by a single ounce by appreciating what Obama means to the world. He has not done well on the economy but that should not take away from the good man he is.
Some day, I will write this up.
