Tears of Joy on the Inauguration of President Obama
I am sure many of you feel as I do today, full of hope and promise for our future. As I was glued to my television all morning, there were many moments when the tears of joy would overcome me.
This AP photo I think captures something uniquely American. Only people who have struggled as this nation has with the issue of race can imagine what today means to each of us, regardless of race. From slavery, to abolition, to reconstruction, to Jim Crow, to struggle and strife, to civil rights, to today's inauguration, the inauguration of President Obama is something of what dreams are made.
