From the "Never Thought I'd See the Day" File

My first post of the new year, on this auspicious day...

2009.

The year the dream I didn't allow myself to dream came true anyway.

The year the nation I live in would truly, and collectively, see beyond the color of a man's skin to the content of his character.

The year my hopes - long encapsulated in the frost of cynical despair - have been released.

I never thought I'd live to see this day, but Lord, I'm glad I did.


Godspeed, President Obama.

Nicely said as usual.

What is this weird feeling that we all have today? Oh yeah, that's it, politcal optimism. Bizarre.

It's telling that someone as young as you thought - you'd never live to see the day.

I'm glad we all did.
