Diversity and Opportunity!

This country has not seen this much diversity and opportunities in high level positions as it has this year.  I have always believed that whenever there are “opportunities” available, then “all” people will have the chance to show their true talents and gifts.  Unfortunately, the opportunities have not always been readily available to “all” people.  Opportunity is the key to success.  Even though you may have stellar academic achievements, awards, and the natural skill to make things happen, if the opportunity is not there to move to higher levels, then it can sometimes be discouraging.  Not only is this a discouragement to the individual, but it is a diservice to the community when diversity is not a part of it.

Dr. Regina Benjamin

     Both Sonia Sotomayor (Supreme Court nominee) and Dr. Regina Benjamin (Surgeon General Pick) are shining examples of hard work and dedication in their communities and who will add great diversity and opinion to America.  Both of these women deserve the opportunity that has been given them to serve our country with the skills and intelligence that they have worked hard to achieve.
