President Elect Obama

Wow! Jubilation! Love! Caring! History!

Tears of joy were shared while listening to this momentous occasion. For the first time in a long time, I am optimistic about our leadership at the Presidential level. The possibilities seem endless.

That was the best night we've had in a long time! Way to go St. Louis! ~84% agree in this city that Obama/Biden was a better choice than McCain/Palin. I like living in a city were we can all overwhelmingly agree on that. I live among friends.

I was overwhelmed with the brevity of having an African American as president elect. I didn't think that really mattered to me until last night as I listened to the many black responses to the results. It was moving. I am so happy and proud of the Obama family.

I hope we can use this momentum and optimism to continue to pull people together for common goals.

Like Barack said, this is going to be tough. There will be sacrifice. I for one am ready.

p.s. I cannot wait to watch Michelle and Barack raising those two beautiful little ones in the White House. So go get that puppy and usher in a new era of caring, compassion and humility to the highest office in this great land.


  1. Sorry to contact you via comment but I didn't see an email address for you on your site. I wanted to let you know about a book I just published. It is called Disappearing St. Louis and it presents 55 color images I captured over a three-year period. They depict the poor conditions of homes, churches, and commercial buildings across the city in historic neighborhoods such as Old North St. Louis, Vandeventer, Fountain Park, Academy, JeffVanderLou, and Hyde Park.

    I created this book because I wanted to bring greater awareness to the issues faced by the city in the hopes of bringing greater support to help solve them. As part of that goal, I have decided to donate all profits from the sale of my book to the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group.

    If you'd like to help spread the word, would you consider mentioning the book on your site? You can learn more about it here (
