The Senator from Illinois

Posted by on August 28, 2008

Welp…this is history.  All politics aside (we’ll have enough of that over the next couple months) this night is a historic event on parallel with…well…it’s WAY up there.

Just a generation ago we struggled with the racial divide in our country.  Forced bussing to integrate schools.  Young African Americans being killed for no other reason than a hatred that corrupts the very soul.  We still struggle with that hatred but, as we have seen leading up to this evening, it has been beaten back to the dark recesses of our country where it belongs.

Tonight for the first time in history a major American political party has nominated an African American to the highest office in the land.  This isn’t about Democrats or Republicans.  It’s about the American spirit shining through strong.  It’s about the American People coming out of a world where personal identity was defined by skin color.

Tonight I’m as proud of my country as I have ever been.  God Speed Senator Obama.  Congratulations.
