In Their Own Words

The Global village is in crisis, Global economic recessions and the current world financial crisis, where do we go from here? no doubt the world needs help, the question is this, is the world looking in the direction of the Black race? Maybe just maybe………

Barack Obama

The First Black to be elected President of the United states

“If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer”

“Its been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to America.”

“I know you didn’t do this just to win an election and I know you didnt do it for me. You did it because you understand the enormity of the task that lies ahead. For even as we celebrate tonight, we know the challenges that tomorrow will bring are the greatest of our lifetime - two wars, a planet in peril, the worst financial crisis in a century.”
