Part II: Not Just the Face, Not Just the Race

Write and let me know if you agree with me, that what makes yesterday special, is that this great country can rise up from adversity.  That we can change our leaders with ballots and not bullets, and that this very special and brilliant man with a Kenyan father and a Kansas mother, a man who is both black and white, is a President who will include all of us in our nation's recovery.  He will be a team builder who will listen to many solutions and choose the course we need to show the world who we really are.   Ralph
