I just returned home from watching something that I spent most of my life believing I would never see - a black man accepted his party's nomination for president. I don't think that I have fully comprehended all of what this means or all of what it will mean if this journey is completed and this nation for the first time elects an African American. However, it is with great hope and anticipation that I look forward to the many who will walk boldly through the doors that have been swung wide open today. As corny and partisan as it may sound, I today believe again, as I did when I was a small child, that we have the power to change the world.
