These wonderful stories will probably be trickling through the Webosphere for weeks and months to come.

I overheard a conversation one woman was having with a mother pushing her son in a stroller. The mother mentioned she told her son she would be voting for the first black president. His response was, “I want to be a black president too!” The other woman and I laughed. It was not a laugh that ridiculed or dismissed the moment, but a laugh of amazement and delight of the infinite possibilities Barack Obama’s candidacy represents to the young people in the African American community.-Source
