Hope.

That a group of bigoted slave-owners could have the wisdom and foresight to create a document, and system of governance, which could adapt to allow the descendants of the slaves they owned to someday become the chief executor of that document is an extraordinary occurrence.  There is no greater symbol of what makes America a truly unique country than that.  The United States of America has much wrong to answer for, and much I've brought up myself.  But there is much good about it as well, and on this evening I am proud to be one of its citizens.
