Congratulations Barack Obama!  

Wednesday, 5 November 2008

Dave and I sat up last night watching the progress in the presidential elections. And were pleased to be able to tell the kids this morning that Barack Obama is the new president of the United States of America.

Wow…history has been made.

We spend so much time telling our children that the colour of their skin and their disabilities have no bearing on what they can achieve, that if they work hard, believe in themselves and have faith, they can achieve anything they want.

But nothing we have said over the years can have got this message across to them better than when Barack Obama stood on the podium and gave his speech. An African America elected into the oval office. He let nothing, least of all the colour of his skin stop him becoming the next president.

What better example could we have chosen to give our children this message? What better example to send to the children across the world.
