  •  Hiya, Darlin'. :-) (5+ / 0-)

    And agreed.  I've cried a lot of tears today - most of them happy ones, all of them from having been profoundly moved.  Here they go again . . . .

      I can't decide what part of his speech meant the most, the reminders we are greater together than when we are torn apart, the joining of Seneca Falls and the Civil Rights movements and Stonewall, his connections to the highest and best of what we want our nation to be, these are the ideas and visions of a complex man, understanding better than most the broad and diverse wealth of our history and our peoples.

      Days like this give us the joy to carry on. We'll struggle and fight on the long road tomorrow, but tonight, let's dance.

        the pieces out from each other.  They're all inextricably intertwined.

        Aside from his speech, though, there was one other thing today that resonated at an almost cellular level.  When Myrlie Evers-Williams said:

        "God, make me a blessing."
        And as I said in a comment at the time:  

        If every one of us could be a blessing, every one of us will have lived well.  I couldn't ask for a better legacy to leave behind.

          her grace and strength are an inspiration once more.

          May we always strive towards the better tomorrow, always remember those who came before.
