I need not bring attention to the historic relevance of this day. I need not commend the valiant efforts of this man and the people who labored by his side. I need not because I hope you already share the same overjoyed sentiments that I am feeling right now.
But what I will do is thank God for the opportunity to witness the realization of a dream several centuries in the making. I will remember the time my High School guidance counselor told me, an A+ involved student, that I couldn't get into NYU. I will remember when my computer science professor at NYU told me he didn't expect me get give a clever answer in front a lecture room. I will remember when I was constantly reminded of my demographic's low graduation rate. I will remember what I defiantly yet innocently knew then in my youth and am assured today with mature conviction...Yes I Can!
Thank you Mr. President.
