We have come a long way in America, but we can do better. We have forgotten what it truly takes to be a great nation--coming together for our mutual benefit. You and others here are trying to be your best, each day as you go out and face the world. That is what we must do, as an example to others. If MLK had known that he would never see his dream realized, he still would have dreamed and hoped and acted. So each of us must dream, hope, and act. I think we are doing that right now on the internet.

Cici, you make some wonderful points about how many black people came to be here in the first place. There is the difference that they didn't have much choice about it. They were 'brought' as property by people who lived here. But I'm not sure how much difference that point makes.
I think with immigration, the lawmakers have to do something now. The government sitting around talking about it - and the media making a circus of it - isn't helping. If they really care, they need to close the borders and define a way to deal with the illegal immigrants that are here now and put that into practice. Period. They need to either allow those who are here to stay and become citizens or deport them.

Ceci. Thanks for condencing the conversation from the day before. That's what I get for skipping a day
Still I feel you are one voice in the wilderness crying out for understanding and moderation and I applaude you for that.
You have voted seagull for the Way Above Top Secret award.
