His Victory, Your Victory

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.)
