Living the American Dream: the Inspiring Tweets of the First Black Senator Elected in South Since Reconstruction

Living the American Dream: the Inspiring Tweets of the First Black Senator Elected in South Since Reconstruction November 6, 2014

If you know me or my story, you may know that I’m a dreamer. Ever since I can remember, I’ve always known that I wanted to live a life that most would consider outside the box. This has lead me to take big risks in business and leaps of faith in my personal life (i.e. The Bachelor). In my mind, life is far too short to not to have fun and pursue the things you love, and our great country gives us the opportunity to pursue those things. 

With this dreamer mentality of mine, I always take notice and admire people who take a similar approach to life. Today there is no better example than South Carolina senator Tim Scott. He’s the first African-American senator to win election in the South since Reconstruction. Reconstruction! That’s Civil War era people! And not only that, he forged his way to the Senate by upholding his political beliefs in a party that has not been popular amongst African-Americans. He had a dream and pursued it and captured it despite the obstacles in his way. 

Scott sent a series of tweets out Monday night that I found very inspiring. He’s truly living the American dream. 

 

Congratulations to Tim Scott, to South Carolina, and to America!
