It's Time

Today was an historic event for this country. We reached a milestone. And I think, to honor it, we should now all be referred to as Americans. That’s it, just Americans.

No, I’m not suggesting anyone stop celebrating their heritage. It’s an important part of why we are who we are and should never be forgotten. But our new president said it’s going to take all of us to make this country great again and that we need to work together in order to accomplish it. So very true. I say let’s stop segregating ourselves and join with every other American to do what must be done.

Well said, Barb. Well said.

I agree, B. I think we're all ready. One million people of all races, creeds, and colors came to Washington today to watch President Obama take his oath of office.

That alone is one huge statement.

Yep. 100 percent right. We tend to put people in categories according to their ethnicity and that should go. Excellent post.

Nice dream...good luck with that. We're still having problems with the one with us all being 'human'
