Something truly magical happened yesterday, we got to be a part of history. I have been reading the comments posted on each article and they upset me.

Just imagine that Obama were anyone other then himself, pick your president. Now close your eyes and truely see yesterday for what it was, The President of the United States of America just drove past your house and waved to you. Maybe you were fortunate enough to have him surprise you at your place of business or you got to hear him speak and meet your family. This was a very magical thing happened here. If you are not an Obama fan, please have respect for the man who is the President.

I live in Bay View and stood at the end of my street with my boyfriend and 2-year-old son and watched as the President of the United States drove past my neighborhood, and recored it. I will be able to show that to my son one day and that makes me proud. We as whole were a part of history yesterday, we should come together as a community and take pride in what happened here.
