Today’s inspiration is a photo of a man who has overcome many obstacles, and in the face of adversity continues to shine brighter than the brightest star. David A. Patterson recently made history by becoming the first black Governor of the state of New York. He also hails from Long Island, like myself, but none of these elements are the reason why I choose to celebrate him today. You see my mother is legally blind, and when the woman who I look up to is inspired by such a man it is inspiring to me! Inspired by his ability to achieve despite his physical handicap, inspired by his enthusiasm about his new position, today I celebrate David Patterson as an inspiration.
