On Sept. 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln issued the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, declaring all slaves in rebel states should be free as of Jan. 1, 1863.

That was a bold move and leads now 145 years later to a Black man running for president.   Actually, when I pause to consider, it seems a long time to have been led by only white men.

Last night, I watched Bill Maher say that the "elitists" are who founded this country, those on the East coast, those who looked to Europe, people who gathered in cities to create a great  nation.  

Let's celebrate the elite, those who work hard and rise, and let our president and vice-president be the best we can produce, no matter what color or gender.   That is when a country shows strength!!
