We have the capacity to overcome.

Despite the hyperbolic reaction by public and press to today’s inauguration of Barack Obama, it is impossible to overstate it symbolic significance.

In my lifetime, a Louisville couple was prosecuted and persecuted for selling their home to a black family. A regional restaurant chain threatened to close its locations in town if it was forced to serve blacks. Etc, etc.

Today’s moment has been a long time coming.

It is not the end of the road.

But today’s lesson is that, with perseverence, good often triumphs over not-so-good and it should be heralded to the highest degree.
