Warning: Cheesiness Ahead
There, you've been forewarned. Anyway, I was driving up to the city today and as I got into town, happened to see a young black man walking on an overpass over the freeway. Just a regular teenager, plugged into his iPod like every other kid out there. What struck me was, regardless of what happens in the next four years, regardless of your personal politics, a corner has been turned where maybe we can look at every child and see limitless potential...for real.
I'm going to paraphrase a line from Ratatouille, one of our favorite movies around here:
"Not everyone can become a leader...but a leader can come from anywhere"
Cheesiness off. Back to eating the kids' Hallowe'en candy.
