Hope is Walking Forward... and Praying

Thursday, January 22, 2009

"O, yes,
I say it plain,
America never was America to me,
And yet I swear this oath--
America will be!"
~ Langston Hughes, 1938

"Say it plain, that many have died for this day."
~Elizabeth Alexander, 2009.

And then she said...

"What if the mightiest word is love..."

And then...

"In today's sharp sparkle, this winter air, anything can be made, any sentence begun.

On the brink, on the brim, on the cusp -- praise song for walking forward in that light."

Amen. Amen.

Praying, praying, praying...
