a little pride, a pride that hasn't been felt in oh so long? One that can make us look
at our history with a clarity about the great strides we have made as a nation
and the tragedies equally?
Forgiveness is probably one of the greatest and hardest
things for a nation and when President Obama spoke about Lincoln allowing Confederate soldiers to go home to their farms and families with no pound of flesh extracted I was moved and I was reminded that hope is a forward looking gift, not one that dwells in the past.
