Blacks in America still have to struggle to achieve equality and success. I know some might say, “Get over it.” However, until you have walked in another person’s shoes, you will not be able to understand their emotions or experiences. Even though I have experienced hardship, I am proud to be a senior citizen who was able to witness the election of an African-American president. In addition, I am praying that one day I will be able to witness another historic moment in American history — a female president.
Regardless of race, I feel America is still a divided nation based on two categories of people — the haves and the have-nots. I pray it will not always be this way. We all need to strive for unity, love and peace.
