As a lover of History (although not an expert), I found myself first drawn to thinking about Lincoln and then glancing at your blog title it immediately took me back further. After reading it, it conveyed so much of what I feel right now and in relation to our forefathers. They have all got to have the biggest grins and "high-fiving" each other like crazy!


Keep up the great work. You give me inspiration.
Down here in the Deep South where I live,the Confederates are making me ill. They are blaming Obama prospectively.

What do you now think of the First Dude's wife? Mccain will go down in infamy as the second stupid dude in Palin's life.

By the way, "Sweetness" is my favorite running back of all time. He was from Mississippi, and only missed one game in his entire NFL career. High Fives weren't yet on the scene in his day. I teared up when he announced his liver disease.

Florida is blue we have a Democratic House & Senate & a African American president.Then reading your letter to President Jefferson sums this week in history with 2 words Mozel Tov. We now have the Elephant off our back

Oui, nous pouvons! I find that I am extremely glad to be an American tonight. To think that so many millions of us stepped into that tiny speck of a place on this planet, in the company of no one, the voting booth, and voted for an African American.

Pride is bursting in every fiber of my being. To all of you I say thank you. We have done the impossible. But America has done this many times in the past. We seem to be able to draw on strength that changes things dramatically when we have to. Like the history of the Jews, we step up with courage and integrity, and do what has to be done.

Let us pray that the peace that is in our President Elect's heart can spread through the world as easily as the waves melt on the seashore. It is time for the world to calm down.


Reading your latest blog this afternoon, I found it eloquent and right to the point. And bringing Thomas Jefferson into the picture was a phenomenal idea. I think that this was one of the most inspiring letters that I have read recently.


From a preacher who had once been a slave:
"Lord, we ain't what we want to be; we ain't what we ought to be; we ain't what we gonna be, but, thank God, we ain't what we was."

Gut Gezugt, but remember to let Moses know as well. After all, he said "Proclaim liberty yo all the inhabotants of the land"

Include Moses who said "Proclaim liberty to all the inhabitants of the land"
