“Surround yourself with really good friends. Have people around you who cheer you on, and applaud you, and support you, and are honest with you, and tell you, you know, when your breath stinks.” –Kamala Harris

I am one who does not write about politics, I believe to this day I may have written three posts.
For this post I thought it would be fitting to write about an Historic Event in America, the first ever Black Woman to be on a presidential ticket. It is not because she is on the Democratic ticket, but because of who Kamala Harris is.
As many readers know I grew up in Windsor, Ontario. I lived within an hours drive of some of the sites around Chatham, Ontario that were connected to the Underground Railroad. [Learn more about it: [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underground_Railroad].
For most of my life from childhood to adult I have always been exposed to Black community. For your information, Windsor, Ontario is directly across from Detroit, Michigan. As an adult with a car I would rather attend a Black Church. I loved how they worshiped, their dedication. I was totally comfortable being around them.
Tonight someone finally took a step into what America can be by choosing a woman of color. The presidential ticket looks more like what America really looks like. I realize, recognize that there will be some who will get their feathers ruffled by this, but not this fifty-eight year old white man.
So dear reader I raise a blogging glass to salute Vice President Nominee, Kamala Harris!
