Girl Effect

A friend sent me this youtube video and I was blown away! What an amazing organization! Take a look! What do you think?

My roommate sent this to me at work today and while it is absolutely hysterical it is also completely pathetic and embarassing - and not only for Bush but for this country! We elected this man - twice! Seriously?

And that's just for 2008. There are lots and lots more. Could January 20th come any sooner?

Congrats CT!

While I was away CT legalized gay marriage! YAY CT!

After the slew of anti-gay ballot initiatives passing on Election Day in California, Arizona, Florida, and Arkansas this is a hopeful move!

Massachusetts and Connecticut are now the only two states that allow gay marriage.

Who’ll be next? (New York, fingers crossed!)


Oh what a night . . .

Sorry for the hiatus away. I was distracted by some other stuff going on in my life, but now I’m back.

So, the Obama victory – what are my thoughts? Well, I’m thrilled! I know people keep saying how historic it is, but it really, really is and saying that isn’t going to get old anytime soon. Barack Obama will be the next President of the United States – thank God! He will undoubtedly lead this country in a drastically different direction – far from what we’ve endured the last 8 years. And I’m not just talking about his policies; his presence in office will undoubtedly change the course of history. A Black woman in my office has little kids and she kept talking about how different her children’s lives will be. For them having a Black man in the White House won’t be something to dream about, it will be a reality. Through their eyes the whole world will be different because of this historic (there I said it again!) victory. It’s incredible.

On the flip side, one Black president doesn’t erase years and years of racism or mean we’ve reached full equality by any means, but it’s a step - an important baby step.

Yes We Can

What a historic night - there are no words. I need some time to process and then I'll report back.

We did it!

For now though, I call bullsh*t on the anti-gay/lesbian ballot initiatives!

It looks like California, Arizona, and Florida's bans on gay marriage will pass as well as Arkansas' ban on gay couples adopting children.

Bullsh*t mama! Let's hope the morning will look more promising, although this is rather unlikely! Barack, it's time for the change you promised! January 20th couldn't come any sooner!

Although I wish I were casting a vote for Hillary tomorrow, I've officially found love for Obama and am confidant that he is the best person to lead this country in a new direction. The alternative is frightening and not an option so go out and rock your vote for OBAMA!!

And if you need more convincing check out Hillary in the Daily News!
