It's Official!!!

Sen. Barack Obama has officially clinched the Democratic nomination, becoming the first African American to do so.

The nomination came after Sen. Clinton called for Obama to be approved by acclamation midway through the roll call by states. Delegates chanted "Obama" and "Yes We Can" as Obama's victory was sealed.

Congratulations to Sen. Barack Obama!

Honor and Respect

As we prepare for the Democratic National Convention, I cannot help but think about the late U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones who died Wednesday from a brain aneurysm.

Rep. Tubbs Jones, the first African American woman elected to Congress from Ohio, was a fighter. She was an outstanding public servant who fought for equality and justice. Rep. Tubbs Jones was known for her legal mind, debating skills, and most of all her smile.

I hope she is not forgotten this week. Funeral arrangements are scheduled for after the convention.

Thank you for giving so much of yourself.

God Bless!!

My thoughts and prayers go to the families and friends of Bernie Mac and Issac Hayes who, coincidentally, died a day apart. They both star in Soul Men to be released later this year.

Gentlemen, thank you for sharing your talent and intellect. May God rest your souls.

It's been a while since my last post. I was in Chicago for 8 days and got back yesterday. I love Chicago and all of its culture and activities. My sister, nephew, and I got caught in the severe, tornado like weather. I'm not use to that type of weather. California has earthquakes not bad weather. The situation was scary but once we got back to the hotel we laughed so much, it was funny. I wouldn't change anything about our trip to Chicago. I can't wait to go back.

I will share my experience and photos.
