fridays are fucking fabulous

9 Oct

because my president won the nobel peace prize.

i know everyone is saying he doesn’t deserve it yet. liberals and conservatives alike. but i think what he has done already has been impressive. is it nobel peace worthy? i don’t really know, but i ask why not? i heard someone say that he is the beacon of peace and hope by merely being himself: a black man as the leader of one of the most powerful countries in the world.  i also cannot help but think about the speech he gave to Cairo University in june. it was both profound and beautiful full of messages of peace, understanding, middle ground, civil rights, women’s rights, and diplomacy.   i know i have a huge crush on obama, i know. but seriously, as i’m sitting in traffic this morning listening to his remarks about how humbled and surprised he feels to be a recipient of the award, i was choked with emotion and something called pride. proud of my president, proud of my country.

good friday.
