Your death was not in vain.
What was your loss in now America's gain,
Forty years in the making.
Forty years of Wilderness Wanderings
Have brought us here; Our Father
Must be smiling through the stars.
(I know you are.)
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride
--U2, 'Pride in the Name of Love'
(I was barely awake from my afternoon nap yesterday when I heard from How that Obama won. Some of these thoughts came as soon as I awoke.)
