I’ve just witnessed a defining moment of history. I have seen what some would call a black man shoulder the responsibilities of what some would like to call a white nation. Through my eyes, however, I’ve seen the best that is my American heritage assume the mantle of our nation and resonate within his people in dignity, strength, and compassion. It is the single most awe inspiring thing I have ever experienced. It has brought tears to my eyes, and hope to my heart. I cannot find the words to express the emotions I feel. But knowing that I am feeling uplifted is enough for today. I am overwhelmingly grateful this has happened in my lifetime.
Vindication. Validity. Victory.
Praise for the day.
