Beautiful Dreams

I cried tonight, watching the election returns come in, mostly when I saw the kids at Morehouse College celebrating. I wish I could see Norfolk State right now; I’m with you in spirit Spartans.

This is indeed a day of magic. Tomorrow, the work begins anew.

Never forget the work we must do in support of equality and justice. Never quiet the call; never shrink from the difficult choices. Never forget who came before us; never forget who stood beside us and who turned away afraid–we must reach out to them all. We cannot remain a nation divided. Most of all, never forget the ones who will come long after we are gone. We build our dreams for them.
