Qualities that matter a lot to me…as a wife…and a mother. And yes, as an American enjoying the freedom to choose the person in whom I place my faith and trust to lead us forward in an uncertain world, keeping us safe from harm to the best of his ability.
Without the benefit of a father by my side as a child, mine having died when I was one, I have placed a great deal of faith and trust in my husband as my life partner, and as the father to our only child.
Knowing that he imagines us in those with whom he deals in his professional life, and compares our well-being with theirs, instills a confidence that my husband would do right by all. He wouldn’t knowingly hurt others while striving to make the workplace a better environment in which to function. Effecting change is done with measured determination, with efforts at conciliation, and without malice.
Barrack Obama is a husband, a father, and President of the United States. It’s my perception that he, like my husband, is a man who loves his family and imagines for all of us what he wants for his own family.
An America in which all can partake of the dream envisioned by the Constitution.
An America wherein the wealthy acknowledge their debt to society in willingly giving back.
An America where all are afforded equal opportunity…equal rights…equal benefits.
An America in which a person can preside in the White House, as though ethnicity and cultural and personal differences were insignificant.
…follow your own heart…choose a leader in whom you can place your faith and trust…
