The Obama Presidency: What Does It Mean?
I asked my son this morning what the Obama presidency means to him. He looked at me and said, what do you mean dad? As I lost the battle of holding back my tears as I spoke to him, I explained to him some of the things that Obama’s presidency might mean to different people, cultures, sub-cultures, constituencies, counties and countries. I then realized that my perspective on the significance of the Obama presidency is limited and that if I really wanted to understand the significance I would be better served by asking others. So, what does this historic event mean to you as an individual, or the world that you live in?
