     Your home of bricks is in your heart. That will keep you steady. All my life my grandparent's house has centered me...even tho' I haven't been in it since the late 60's. It was a home built during the Depression with my grandfather's labor. It was a home the grew food and shared with the hungry. It was a home that sent two sons to war. And, it was a home that welcomed grandchildren.In that home I was formed by two wise people. They created in me a hunger for knowledge. They gave me an appreciation of other cultures. In that home I never heard hate. Work and love and learning.

     It is the home...the secure hearth that Obama needs to recreate.
