If you have not seen Obama's speech from March 18th RIGHT HERE in Philly. Click Here.
Did you click?
Did you decide not to click because you support McCain or Clinton?
Have you seen it?
This is what I am talking about people.
I will have a much more eloquent post on the morrow but until then let me say that this is the future I want for my children. Anjali wrote a great piece on her family heritage and the "present" her children are enjoying with their granparents right now.
It is for all these reasons that I am hopeful. SO HOPEFUL.
We are a tremendous people and if we can begin to recognize that it is our diversity that makes us strong, that is our very lack of only one simple definition that defines us - we will be phenomenal.
This future understanding, this future of acceptance, is what I see when I see when I look at my kids,at Anjali's kids, my brother's kids, and when I see Barack Obama.
Oh and my Nephew Noname?
It is official:
I am so pleased to have you in the world.
