America has just taken a huge, momentous, historic step forward this morning with the election of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America.
It's so difficult to fathom that, not so long ago - within MY lifetime - non-whites were not permitted to use the same public transport as whites, nto allowed to go to the same schools, etc etc ...... and now the people have actually voted for a non-white man to lead them.
My only fear now, is that the crackpot white supremists (KKK et al), might try to do something about it.
But for now, I'm thrilled.
