Last week, my lifelong Republican now Democratic parents told me there is a promising candidate for President in 2008. Barack Obama. They are entusiastic, and even gave me a Time Magazine about Barack. I hadn't had a chance to think too much about this until today, when I got an email from Barack encouraging my support for the Democratic ticket this year. So I went to his website, and saw something very positive about the man... "Since coming to Washington, Senator Obama has made the elimination of childhood lead poisoning one of his top priorities." Add to that, "Senator Obama has been a strong supporter of the Great Lakes Regional Collaboration and is a cosponsor of the Great Lakes Environmental Restoration Act (S. 508)" "He is a cosponsor of the Climate Stewardship and Innovation Act (S. 1151)"... etc.

Read E-Mail from Barack Obama, as it contains important information on Obama's position on lead poisoning, which I will ask him to expand upon during the election...

Since then, I've followed the campaign through my parents eyes, full of glee, and my eyes, appreciating authentic genius, and, now that the Obama Campaign is based in the Former Hough Bakeries, which we call The Star Complex, in a funky, cool space called The Inner Circle, all of which I am helping develop and so where I am daily, I am seeing Obama through thousands of fresh eyes of all types, first hand, and I see pride, love, respect, confidence and hope, all at once, in each and every one.

I'm capturing this through my lens and words, as I agree with Congressman Conyers, and Charles Bibb, and Shirley Scott, and all the other people I'm meeting coming together for Obama, that this is a historic time in world hisotry and we are all very fortunate to have the opportunity to be part of it. What is coming of my efforts will be rooted in this book, linked in the contents menu to the left and in the links below...
