Well that certainly trumps fashion for the moment. Nothing lingerie inspired, deconstructed or even a good, old return to Yazgur's Farm can top this news. I don't really have a political hair on my hairless body, but I've become conscious due to the simple fact that we've been living in a parallel universe with little oxygen and even less common sense.
For everyone one who's supported President Obama, the belief and desire for change,for Black people, for people of color, for the many minorities and the disenfranchised; today is a wonderful day to celebrate. The Peace prize is given at times to people as an impetus to push towards a more peaceful world. I think he's been awarded because the backbone of his agenda is one of inclusion and not the doctrine of the last regime which was one of exclusion and division. President Obama has worked tirelessly since before his Inauguration to bring us together. He's shown the similarities in all of our diverse cultures and done it in a way that have taken the whole world into account. I believe that the countries outside of the U.S. want to like and regain respect for us, respect which was diminished and all but forgotten in the last years of the Bush Administration. We went from a country to be followed and praised to one that was denigrated and despised. The Obama administration is bringing us back from the brink and making a place for us at the world table. He's reached out to all corners of the world, the ambivalent nations as well as the notorious, and treated all with the same measure of respect. That desire for respect is the common denominator that every person on this planet wants and deserves. He presents a multi-ethnic face to the world of an America that is symbolic of the larger world. This simple gesture has given us all a chance and renewed desire to work towards the most important single goal: Peace. In a peaceful world anything is possible. In a world of cooperation and understanding we all have a fighting chance. We as Americans are not the only lucky ones, so is the rest of the Planet.
