I sit here, in awe, watching our 44th president accept his new position. My boys are excited, because we have been supporting Obama from day one, but they don't see the big deal about him being elected. As a mom of bi-racial children, I cry because this means when I tell them that they can be anything when they grow up, it is true. I cry because he has a way with words, that inspires hope and faith in his ability to lead us. I cry because I know this man will bring much needed change to a nation where the American dream has been lost.
