Last month we said farewell to the Obama family. Barak Obama and Michelle Obama have made a grand impact in our nation’s history. Because of them we truly know that anyone who is willing to work hard in the United States of America can become anything they want even the President of the United States.I remember the hurt I felt as a little girl when I learned that Martin Luther King Jr. had been assassinated due to his skin color. So when in January of 2009, when Obama became President, tears rolled down my face; they were happy and sad tears as I just couldn’t stop thinking about Martin Luther King Jr. & Rosa Parks that day. I also thought of all the families that prior to us lived with segregation, slavery and many other pains.As a Latina, I wish to honor African Americans such as the Obama family, Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Oprah and many more African Americans that have been such a great example during my lifetime. It’s also a great honor for me to have had a choice to vote for the first African American President. If there is one thing that I would like to leave the next generation, that would be CHOICES.I know we can’t go back and change history but we surely can learn from it. I would never want to change Obama being the first African American president of the United States; and not for one but two terms. And to top that off, we had by far the greatest first lady, Michelle Obama. Not sure we will see such a great combination like that one in a very long time, if ever. No matter what you feel about them, the Obama’s will go down in history.Again as a Latina I know that one day there will be a Latino (a) president; all because of the Obama’s. Thank you, President Obama and thank you Michelle Obama for all that you did for our country.
