I can smell a great man or woman from a far! They may be shaggy, unkempt, sometimes mercilessly broke!Their current state may betray them… But if you come across a man with a vision or a woman on a mission, never let them go!
Until one day when she saw the man addressing a social gathering, and felt the punch in his voice, and the beauty in his words and the greatness in his vision, She had no time for Obama
When Michelle was posted to be Obama’s personal Secretary and aide,the skinny grandson of Kogelo was infact a smoker… When he tried to take the lovely damsel for a date, like all girls do, Michelle turned him off so embarrassingly! Until one day when she saw the man addressing a social gathering, and felt the punch in his voice, and the beauty in his words and the greatness in his vision, She had no time for Obama..
When she later realised the deep seated gem in this man, she decided to stick like a postage stamp!
When an individual has a vision,stick around and own the vision too… GOOD THINGS WAIT! GREAT THINGS ENDURE!
What if Michelle would have given up on Obama because of his weaknesses, poverty and imperfections? Would she have been a proud American watching Obama side-by-side with say a Moureen at the White House? Talk of emotional torture… Keep this post for ten years, I will resurface it exactly ten years from now..
