This morning I was awakened by my grandchildren calling and asking if we knew it was snowing? I got up, looked out the window and told them I saw it. They were jubilant to go out and play in it. This was their first chance to see snow.
Having lived in the North and seeing snow every winter it had no great expectation for me. I did however smile and wonder did the School Board Members receive calls to ensure that the students test schedule would not be interrupted. Some things were meant to be. On this, such a great day for the country, a history making event for the books, a time for togetherness, a time for rejoicing and showing the world that we have for the moment brought great joy not only for blacks, but every race that made the event possible.
“My God” in his infinite wisdom cannot only change the hearts of man, but can and will answer prayer. You can bet there were prayers sent up for the first Black President of this the UNITED States of America. Yes, prayers from every race, creed, and color. Surely a great pride has been and will be had for the culmination of The Reverend Martin L. King Jr. Dream. We as a people regardless of race, creed, color or religion should cast aside all feeling of superiority, racism, and finally believe “we hold these truths to be self-evident” that all men “are created equal.” Let us be reminded that God said “he would be coming back looking for a church without spot or wrinkle.”
