I mean I know it’s like amazing that someone black (Or partially Black) is now president but that’s not what makes my heart sing about Obama being president.
What makes my heart sing about Obama is the things he stands for, the principles and morals that he has, but not only those alone. What really makes my heart sing is that he really understands how to be an effective, inspiring leader. He really understands that he needs to work with the system in order to change it, not fight against it.
I feel so proud of who he is, he is a truly amazing person, not because of his race, but because of the man he is. Don’t get me wrong, the fact that an American president who is of mixed race is certainly something to celebrate, that IS amazing in its own right, but that’s not the most important aspect of Obama. His confidence and how he inspires people, his ability to effect change, that’s what I celebrate!
I have a goal to be a leader, I’d love to become an effective leader like Obama, if I even become 1% as good at being a leader and role model as he is I will consider my goal achieved :)
How has Obama inspired you? Has he inspired you? Are you just tired of all the fuss? Do share, I’d love to know what you think.
