E Pluribus Unum

Well,I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now,because I’ve been to the mountaintop.

And I don’t mind.

Like anybody,I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight,that we,as a people,will get to the Promised Land!

I don’t know if Dr. King was talking about tonight,or about a day five months hence,but today I feel just a little bit more like we’re one people on the road to the Promised Land tonight. I might not agree with Senator Obama on every issue*,but I’m glad that as a nation we’re finally to the point where a night like this is finally possible. And I’m glad one day I’ll be able to tell my children I saw it.

* But tonight,I agreed with him on nearly everything.
