Just hours ago the 44th President of the United States of America was sworn into office. Particularly poignant was that this American president happens to be a black male, the first black male to ever hold the office.

For women, like myself, who absolutely love and adore black men, who know the beauty of their spirits and the sheer magnitude of their potential, this moment was particularly endearing. To see a beloved black man achieve such a monumental success validates every black parent and grandparent who nurtured us, encouraged us, inspired us, and made us believe that we could all do and be better if we were willing to work hard for our goals.

May God's blessings be with President Barack Obama and his family and may God bless us all.
