Apparently, this text message was making the rounds on Election Day. I found it wonderfully appropriate:
I cried. Tears of joy. I can now tell my children and grandchildren: "I was at home, glued to CNN, when history was made."
For US President-elect Barack Obama, a prayer:
May the Lord bless and keep you and your family safe in the palm of His Hand. May the Holy Spirit guide you in the long and difficult road ahead. May your nation finally find healing and peace, a renewed spirit of brotherhood and may this also be true for the rest of the world. Amen.
"Rosa Parks sat so that Martin Luther King could march. Martin Luther King marched so Barack Obama could run. Barack Obama ran so our children can fly."
