I have all sorts of things whirling around my brain this morning not much of it cohesive at this point. I did not get enough sleep last night or enough coffee this morning. I hope and pray for President-Elect Obama he will have a difficult road ahead and like so many black men before him he will have to work harder and do it better.
For me one of the most moving parts to the evening was watching Jesse Jackson with tears running down his face witness to the very history he helped make possible. Somewhere along the line his thinking and path derailed into nastiness but last night all was forgiven and he was I hope remembering his roots and passion and all the sacrifice of so very many that made all things possible last night.
