"At 109, Slave's Daughter Revels In Historic Vote" - This is the headline from an npr article you can find here. A 109 year old woman has seen and lived through it all in her lifetime. She never thought she would live to see the day a black man was elected as president of the most powerful country in the world.
"Jones is the living link between the time when black men were owned as property and the time when a black man has been elected president of the United States."
I can honestly say I am excited for the future of this country.
