5 Years Ago

This day, Senator Paul Wellstone and seven others died in a plane crash near Eveleth, Minnesota. I rarely agreed with his political views and supported his opponents, but it was easy to respect his honesty and appreciate his optimism, which has been all too rare in recent years.
I dare to imagine a country where every child I hold in my hands, are all
God's children, regardless of the color of their skin, regardless of whether
they're boy or girl, regardless of religion, regardless of rich or poor, that
every child I hold in my hands, will have the same chance to reach her full
potential or his full potential. That is the goodness of our country. That is
the essence of the American dream.

May he rest in peace.
