Colombian Free Trade Article Published

Please take a look at the article linked here. The position that the new administration takes on Colombian can shape the policy practices in Latin American for the remainder of Obama's first term. It will also set the stage for how we play-out scenarios with countries that are clear Human Rights violators.

Dreams For My Daughter!

Today marks the day that any dreams or aspirations that I may have for my daughter, became more real-actually possible. Any obstacles she may face, as she assuredly will, will not be due to the door being slammed shut and locked in her face. The "door"was kicked down and kicked down so hard the house fell apart. Now we get the privilege to rebuild it into a fine mansion. A home in which we all can fit.

Today being American means walking with your head a bit higher.

Thank you Barack Obama for my making my daughter's life a bit easier and mine a bit better! My gratitude is unconditional and endless.

Well there is nothing left to say, but OMG we are here. I have volunteered, waited in line, seen the paper ballad machine break in front me as I am 10 people away from submitting it (For the record: Braddock District, VA-Burke Commons Location), voided my paper ballot, got back in line to re-vote and voted electronically. Ugh! What a day! What a feeling! We are hours away people from history-real history. History with some hope for the future attached to it.
