Priorities

He interrupted a crucial campaign to visit his dying grandmother. He didn't wait. That is moral courage. Yesterday she died, one day short of the election.


My mother had relatives in Chicago; one of her cousins was an FBI agent when I was a child. They eventually moved to northern California. I know they're voting for The (only) One.

  2. Did you see his speech in which he was talking about his grandmother and "ordinary heroes" and the tears were streaming down his cheeks? I can't wait until this night is over and we have Barack Obama as our president. xoxox

  3. What a beautiful photograph. Thank you for the beauty of your post. Tonight, while driving home from work, I drove through a black neighborhood in our small, Southern town. About 100 people were standing on the sidewalks, holding Obama signs, just waving to the passing cars. I was so overwhelmed by this tribute and faith in what might actually be by tomorrow morning.
