Eight ears ago I will never forget where I was the moment the final votes were in to determine the 44th president of the United States of America. In that moment I literally believed I lived and witnessed historical greatness. Barack Obama becoming the 44th president of the United States of America and served two terms sent a message of hope all around the world for so many. I believe if a black man can be president of one of the world’s greatest nations than anything is possible.
2016 presidential elections just proved that anything can happen. The feeling of hope and joy that filled the air eight years ago has been replaced with melancholy and grief today. Many woke up in disbelief of the results of the 45th presidential election. Another historical moment but with a shocking plot twist.
Despite the outcome, what seemed impossible was achieved and history was made. Four American women made political history by becoming the voice of Black, Muslim, Asian, Hispanic, Aboriginal and disabled individuals of the nation. Bring more diversity and representation where it once did not exist. Hope still exist even if it’s the size of a mustard seed. Sometimes it’s the smallest seed of faith we need to implant in us to bring out the greatest change in our lives. It takes courage to go against the norm. For these four women and Hilary Clinton in required them to believe in the impossible.
I rather look at this election with the belief that anything is possible. In life, we will always encounter obstacles that will require us to believe in the impossible first. Three years ago creating an educational resources centre of students with special needs seemed impossible but I believed in it and that I could do it. If I did not have faith and belief, you wouldn't be reading this blog now. I challenge you to view this election and life from the same perspective. It may seem stormy and gloomy now but believe that hope still exist and it will trump what seems impossible and be triumphant in the end.
