Obama   Leave a comment

I was very moved by the inaugural address, especially regarding Obama’s views of the world and America’s place in it.  His focus on bringing oppositions together and encouraging humility and respect toward those with whom we disagree is beautiful.  His presidency reminds me that reconciliation between those who have priveleges and power and those who have been marginalized is usually unsuccesful unless it is led by a member of the unempowered, in this case an African American, and by one who is more committed to reconciliation than judging, to healing and restoration more than justice.
