Vox populi, vox dei



I have never been more proud of my American brothers and sisters. Hope lives.

PS:
My friend D sent me an excerpt from an article entitled "Obama's private prayer" published in the Trinidad Guardian newspaper of Saturday, July 26, 2008 pg.A30. It says that Obama left the prayer in the cracks of Jerusalem's Western Wall when he visited Israel. D asked if I would put it on the blog and I'm happy to do so.

OBAMA'S PRAYER

LORD - PROTECT MY FAMILY AND ME. FORGIVE ME MY SINS, AND HELP ME GUARD AGAINST PRIDE AND DESPAIR. GIVE ME THE WISDOM TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT AND JUST. AND MAKE ME AN INSTRUMENT OF YOUR WILL. AMEN

Lane, absolutely, positively wonderful. I don't have enough superlatives!

akalol, fantastic shot. I think it's my favourite image of him so far. It symbolizes for me much more than his emotion on the death of his grandmother.
