In the late 1940's or early 1950's, Daddy worked at a gas station that was next to a cafe that was open all night. One night, an African-American family came & asked if he would order hamburgers for them at the cafe. Daddy ordered for them. You see, in those days African-Americans were not allowed in cafes.
Today we saw a great moment in history! The inauguration of the President of the United States, Barack Obama! I know he will be noted in history as the first African-American to become President, but I wish our past had not made this moment a big distinction. I wish President Obama would be known as the 44th President, regardless of his race.
My family is made up of many races. My hope is that the days of prejudice against all races, religions, or sex are over. I pray that no one will ever have to face prejudice against them as that family who only wanted something to eat.
