Watching the opening ceremonies for the National Museum of African American History, I was incredibly moved by the speeches of John Lewis and Barack Obama. I don’t know if or when we will ever see another president who embodies the intellect, judgment and temperament, empathy and sheer humanity possessed by the current occupant of the Oval Office.
At the same time I am deeply saddened and worried that he could possibly be succeeded by a man so fundamentally unfit and unprepared and unworthy of the office.
Today is a day when we see the best of America on display, understanding that the dark and hateful side of the country lurks below, embodied by the GOP candidate and his supporters.
