[Barack, my Email Buddy]
I ordered an Obama t-shirt for my little brother's birthday back in November and since then I've recieved an email (or two) every day from Mr. Barack Obama himself. At first I was annoyed. I deleted them without opening them, and thought that I'd just kinda take my time in figuring out who I'd back in the race for the White House. I didn't know much about Mr. Obama besides the fact that some wondered if he was "black enough." But after doing a little research, I was amazed by his story, his background, his marriage, his faith, and his mission in life. I started reading those emails. I started to consider things that I could do to make the world a better place. Obama seems black enough, and Christian enough, and good enough. And when he says "Yes we can"--I believe it.
