images speak


last night at the close of the Democratic convention, Barack Obama delivered one of the great speeches of our time--one that even Pat Buchanan called a speech that will be remembered in history--and left me breathless.

I have to get to work, but two powerful images can convey what is in my heart today:

two little girls, one black one white, laughing and catching confetti on stage

two older women in the audience, one black one white, locked in a tight embrace, tears streaming down their faces

the hope and promise of the future, the powerful healing of the past
