Greetings On-Line Family:

President Elect

Barack Obama

The 44th President of the United States of America


"...Change Has Come..." says President Barack Obama


The people have spoken!  OH YES WE HAVE, and our voices mattered, because history was made on November 4, 2008.  We, approximately 64,413,006+ of us (53%) elected our candidate Barack Obama as the next President of these United States.  

President Obama on this long difficult journey ascended to the highest position in the land and has become the First African-American to hold this position…Yup, the first African-American President of the United States of America.  This is truly an amazing time in history, that many of us are extremely happy to witness in our lifetimes. 

As most of us know President Elect Obama received 364 Electoral votes compared to Senator McCain’s 163, which is a decisive defeat and clearly a blow-out.  On-line family WE DID IT along with millions across the county.  All races, all colors and most importantly all ages, went out in high numbers and voted in America's most historical Presidential race for this phenomenal man.  WE CERTAINLY DID IT!!! 

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008, even though it was an uneasy day; it was one I will never forget.  I personally was a nervous wreck; feeling as if I was sitting on "pins and needles".  Once I arrived home I tried to unwind and snuggled into my favorite sofa in front of the TV waiting for the results.  As they began coming in, I found myself becoming upset because they seem to be unfavorable for my candidate.  I remembered panicking and calling my husband Todd practically every minute complaining to him about the results.  Needless-to-say, once Todd arrived home and the results continued coming in I became a lot more relaxed.  And would you know it...before my eyes Senator Obama began winning state after state after state, and the electoral college votes rapidly began adding up.  

Tears of joy flowed down when it was announced that Senator Barack Obama was the President Elect of the United States.  This brilliant African-American gentleman we all believed in is indeed the new President of the United States.  Many of you shared with me your joy and stated you fell to your knees and said a pray of thanks between the tears.  

ObamaPaintingChange-large.jpg (16680 bytes)For me, at the very moment it was announced my thoughts went full circle and I reflected on all the demoralizing heartfelt events that took place throughout the history of the United States with African-Americans.  The pain and suffering our ancestors endured fighting for their life and their families, the lynchings, withstanding the powerful water hoses, surviving the bites of their flesh by attack dogs, marching and fighting for equal rights, equal justice, equal pay, proper and equal education, and just to be treated equal in many aspects.  I reflected on Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King's famous "I Have A dream" speech and thought of how proud he would be of this major accomplishment, and of how America has progressed throughout the years to overcome its hatefulness of a race of people.  Oh yes, America has come a long way and on this night November 4th, 2008, its citizens chose change, came together, united and chose the right person for the job who would govern over this great nation, and lead this country back on to the right path of success.

ObamaPaintHome-large.jpg (31898 bytes)Additionally, this accomplishment has broken down barriers and has given us hope.  Our children can indeed be all they want to be, they can now see themselves as great leaders.  They are now able to look at a reflection of themselves in President Obama, and believe in themselves.  Most importantly, our children can strive to accomplish what President Obama has accomplished...they can now work hard towards, and fight to achieve the highest position in the land.


ObamaPaintingProgresslarge.jpg (25572 bytes)Indeed President Elect Barack Obama has accomplished a major milestone, but it will not be an easy road for him; because he has inherited more problems than any other President of the United States.  There will be lots to do to fix the many crisis's we are currently undergoing: (1) the failing economy; (2) the housing crisis; (3) the unstable stock market; (4) the war in Iraq and Afghanistan; (5) the high unemployment rate; (6) the health insurance crisis; (7) folks losing their retirement/pensions; (8) the energy crisis, etc. (just to name a few).  He certainly begins another long and difficult road to bringing things back on track and in order in this great nation. I truly believe he can progress, in fact I know he will!!! 

Before I close out this topic, I must share with you how astounding the night Tuesday, November 4th was, and one which I will never forget, became as it progressed it became more astonishing and interesting.  

You see, we decided to leave the house to get a bite to eat, and continued driving while listening to the speeches and results on satellite radio.  We found ourselves several miles away from home and in Washington DC.  As we approached the White House, we saw thousands of people congregating in the streets, jumping, screaming and celebrating President Obama's victory!  The thousands of folks who were celebration were young and predominantly white; and they were running up and down the streets of Washington DC chanting  Obama... Obama... Obama... Yes we Can... Yes We Can... Yes We Did... Yes We Did...  

This was an amazing site, so we decided to get out of the car and walk around town to check things out further.  As we walked we saw police officers standing looking on in astonishment and several were capturing this astounding site via their cameras and video recorders.   We even saw a popular local news reporter who expressed to us that he had never seen anything like this in his life, and he told us to walk down to the White House to see the thousands who were celebrating this great victory there.  

Astonishing is not the word, it was simply unbelievable.  These harmless young folks dressed in their Obama/Biden or there "Yes We Can" T-shirts, holding their Obama/Biden posters chanting, singing, playing instruments, and parading in bands/large groups up and down the streets of Washington DC.  Many were in cars as well and were driving up and down blowing their horns to the beep of "Yes (beep) "We (beep) Can (beep).   After spending a few hours observing this amazing site, we decided to drive to other areas in DC to check out what was happening.  

On the historical "U " Street Corridor people were celebrating the same way.  The same thing was taking place in the trendy district of Adam's Morgan, and finally we drove to Howard University and found the students who lives on campus were hanging out in front of their buildings chanting and celebrating this historical victory. 

This was certainly a night to remember for years to come.  Actually, I don't recall anything like this ever happening in past elections, and as I inquire more, everyone has told me, nothing like this has ever happened before either.  WHAT A HISTORICAL NIGHT AND EVENT!!!  The countdown begins:  today is 73 days before President Elect Obama is sworn into his new position - The President of the United States of America.


To President Elect Barack Obama, his lovely wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha we wish you all the best.  Please know that we are very proud of you and your historical accomplishments.  

We know you are a wise President, and we pray that as you govern over these next four years, all you do is successful.  May you and your family be blessed, and are always kept safe.

Welcome to Washington DC!

   You have Vote with Hope!

You have Voted for Change!

And Change has come!!!

"We may not get there in one year or even in one term," "But, America, I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you, we as a people will get there."  

President Barack Obama


On November 4, 2008, we lost 73 year old Jamaican Soca/Calypso Legend Byron Lee, who was the leader of his world-famous band "Byron Lee and the Dragonnaires".  Mr. Lee passed on after a two-year battle with cancer.  

The lost of this exceptional and famous entertainer is very devastating for many around the world because Mr. Lee has entertained thousands for over 50 years, and was loved by many.  He recorded several ska and calypso songs, including "Tiny Winey" and "Dancehall Soca."

Mr. Lee played a crucial pioneering role in bringing Jamaican music to the world, actually he was the first person to promote live Jamaican music in North America, and was one of the biggest reasons for the explosion in popularity of Jamaican music in the late 60s and early 70s.   In addition to his band being successful, he was a successful promoter, label owner, and studio owner.  He also introduced Carnival to Jamaica.

Late last month, Mr. Lee was honored with the "National Honour of Order of Jamaica" for his outstanding service to the music industry, and in 2007 he was honored with the "Order of Distinction" in the rank of Commander.  Additionally, Mr. Lee received several other awards (1) Institute of Jamaica Centenary medal for the development of music in Jamaica in 1981 and (2) the Silver Musgrave medal for his contribution to music in 1978.

We at Arious send our sincerest condolences to Mr. Lee's family, friends and fans.  He will always be remembered, and most importantly he will be remembered for the music and legacy he leaves behind.  RIP Byron, your music will forever live on.
