Thank you America

On the 1st December 1955 Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat for a white man, 53 years later the United States of America voted to instate their first African American President. Today is a great day for all those who have fought for equality. Racial, sexual or otherwise. For those who have sacrificed their lives for their beliefs and for freedom from oppression, for the good of others. I saw a picture of Rev Jesse Jackson with tears in his eyes and it brought tears to mine. Obama is a good man who in my opinion has won the hearts of America and the world not because of the colour of his skin, but because of the content of his character.
