Thanks, dear CR,
for your dignified celebration of the historic event!
People here were following it with keenest interest.
The only black brother of our Masonic Lodge took a plane for DC and I was on the brink of joining him.
He told me he hardly noticed how cold it was.
The following excerpt of your second link struck me:
"I finally feel like I belong," said Carolyn Jackson, a 49-year-old federal employee who grew up in segregated Haynesville, La., a town of 4,000, in the 1960s. She recalled being 7 and wondering why she couldn't drink from certain water fountains in her school.
Hard to imagine of how demeaning that must have been for Carolyn...!
