This morning, I woke up as usual. I prayed to God–giving thanks. Then I went into the bathroom. The hot water spigot is stripped–and the water is not feeding through when trying to shower. My blood pressure went up a bit but mainly I just took it in stride and accepted that this is just another issue to put on the block.
Nonetheless, I’m not yet ready to blog any pieces about anything yet. As most of you, I am waiting till after the Inauguration.
Obama gave his last speech in Chicago last night. That’s my hometown. I wish I could have been there. I was laying down when it came on and only heard about 10 minutes of it before dozing off. I checked it out again on the news-feed and I was struck by how unmoved I was. Honestly, I haven’t been that impressed with Obama. He’s done some things but I feel that African Americans didn’t hold him accountable. His capitulation to the Republican Party and to White America’s Fear of a Black President, literally set the tone for the election of Donald Trump.
Here is the full speech for those who missed it:
9 days from now, a new man will sit in the seat being vacated by President Barack Hussein Obama.
What kind of transition will this be?
I am actually not ready to make any kind of speculation because frankly, I just can’t call it right now.
Today, I’m focused on getting myself in a position where I won’t have to work. I really am thinking about retiring young. There is a lot I want to do. And I am going to put more energy in becoming THE OWNER of what I do. Entrepreneurship is the best route for African Americans in my opinion. I got plans. BIG PLANS.
As for the rest, I’m sure there will be a lot to talk about in 2017. But…as of yet, we’ll all just have to wait and see what will unfold.
