My president is black...
It's almost over
With it being Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and only 4 days left in office for President Obama I thought it would be important to do some reflecting on President Barack Obama's presidential term. 8 years is a long time, but this presidential term seems to be that vacation that you never wanted to end. But the surreal part is that it's almost over. For some kids your the only President they ever knew, and for some people your the only President they ever acknowledged. You gave hope to a nation who never had it. You dodged all the jabs that they tried to throw at you, (and believe me there were a lot of jabs thrown). You promised change whether directly or indirectly, for a nation that needed change directly or indirectly. This moment of realizing that change didn't happen, and the emotions that come with the thought that this may have been our only chance, only J. Cole could some up this emotion is his song "Be Free"...
