From that I immediately thought about one of my favorite movies of all time. When the movie was in theaters, I was a mere 2 years old. It wouldn't be for several years before I viewed it. This movie was ground breaking in its controversial (for the time) subject matter.
"Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" still holds such relevance. I watched it a couple of weeks ago and felt entranced. I was in awe. The following video is the final speech made by Spencer Tracy. I feel it says it all. I thank my parents for teaching me to be color blind.
Last night, November 4, 2008 I sat in awe once again, but on a whole new and different level. I was overcome with emotion. A day had come that I thought I'd never see in my lifetime. What made it even more amazing was sharing it with my son. "Mom! This is history!" He high-fived me as he let out a whoop!
I could sense the energy of a nation as I watched a very humbled Senator John McCain make his concession speech. God Bless him. He was gracious and humble. His words set a tone for Americans to follow in welcoming and supporting our new president. God Bless America.
