Obama is not my candidate, but tonight I feel overwhelmed from the top of my head to the tips of my toes that an African-American has secured the Democratic nomination for the Presidency. It's late in coming, too late, and it shouldn't be significant, but it is. It has got to be a sign that we're headed in the right direction, that we are starting to see beyond ethnicity and labels, and that old wounds have begun to heal.
From Martin Luther King Jr: "I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."
