Congratulations America

Category: All Posts,Leadership,Prayers,Stories of Life – Rose – 8:20 am

Black and white, all people of color, young and old celebrating in the streets, young people activated, John McCain giving a gracious, generative concession speech–what an historical moment we are living in. I pray we will take the hope ignited and in God’s hands make the most of this moment for our world. I bet those great cloud of witnesses are cheering:

    “If this work can contribute in any way toward proving this, and at the same time arouse the conscience of the American people to a demand for justice to every citizen, and punishment by law for the lawless, I shall feel I have done my race a service.” Ida B. Wells
    “I had crossed the line. I was free; but there was no one to welcome me to the land of freedom. I was a stranger in a strange land.” Harriet Tubman
    “I have a dream” “Let Justice Roll” Martin Luther King Jr.

  1. We would echo the congratulations – even over here there is a sense of hope and of the history of this moment – as Nick said to Zoe at breakfast, “You will remember this day for the rest of your life”.
