We can transcend...we can cross bridges...
I'm at a conference in Montreal - one of the keynote speakers was the CEO of the Africa Trust - a foundation doing some amazing work on that continent. When asked what he thought of President (elect) Obama's victory, he quoted a cab driver in Senegal on Wednesday morning: "He is Africa's gift to America ... and America's gift to the world." I like that.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot: "YIPPEE!!!"
Hope you're both well. Bien venue :-)
Susan - yeah, I was in the Vcr airport watching a huge screen with the other red eye passengers. There were tears on so many faces. Mine too.
Merci! We're having a bon temps en Montreal et c'est comme printemps ici. (I think I said it's as warm as spring here...)
I would also like to join with you in congratulating America on the election of their 44th President Barack Obama. It does send out a positive message of hope and good will to see an African / American with his wife touring the white house with the Bush’s, partially built by African slaves, the ancestors of Obama’s wife.
ok - i'm grumpy. it's monday, there are 4 inches of snow on the ground and the weather forecast is for freezing rain. humbug
