Almost 9 years ago, I left work early to attend an Obama rally in Ault Park. He was just a few miles from my house and I knew I would never forgive myself if I let the opportunity pass me by.
I am so glad I went. He was inspiring then just as he is inspiring now. All the things I wrote in my blog post then, I still believe in today. Today is dark for me and many others, but many of us march in protest today, and others will march tomorrow, including me.
Thank you, President Obama. Of all the people in all the world, you are one of my favorites.
