No words can describe the sea of humanity that flooded Washington’s Mall to be part of an inimitable moment in history… the adoring eyes of a father wrapping his baby in pink ski overalls, to help her brave hours of chilling cold before their hero takes the oath… the delirium roused by a Baptist preacher as he wept, proclaiming a “Messianic promise” fulfilled.
Whites, blacks, poor, rich, faithful, faithless, healthy, sick, intellectuals, greens, reds, blues, Keynesians, supply-siders… the burden of hope is immense. Hopefully not unbearable.
