historic moment

I watched Barak Obama's acceptance speech last night. I encouraged my son to watch as well. Because, whether you are a Democrat, a Republican or an Independent, last night was history unfolding. A watershed moment in the story of America. An African-American man, accepting his party's nomination for the highest office in the country!

We have come far, but there is a long way to go. It needs to not be a wish, but a truth, when a parent tells their child -- yes baby, you can grow up and be President. It needs to be true when that child is a girl, is disabled, is poor, is gay, is muslim, is jewish. When we can't see an impediment, but only possiblity, we will have truly arrived.
