pull up the people.
yesterday, june 3, 2008, with all state primaries counted, barack obama passed the 2118 delegate mark and became the democratic presumptive nominee. he is the first african american to be the presumptive nominee of a major political party in the history of the united states of america.
jasmine and i were texting eachother as soon as we heard the news.
did you know that obama was placed under secret service protection on may 3, 2007, the earliest ever for a u.s. presidential candidate? it's no coincidence that this type of protection is in place for a candidate, that 20 years ago might have been perceived as a completely radical choice.
we are living through a very special time. history is happening all around us. we need to make sure that we open our ears as well as as opening our eyes.
