One response to our first black President's DNC speech

speaking last night at the DNC closing.
The African-American girl came in late to this morning’s Assessment class, un-excused, but so what. J- sat down and asked if I saw the Democratic Convention last night, and I told her yes, I had. 


She glowed with enthusiasm. 


“What did you like best?” I asked her.


She was disappointed with my question, and looked away, “I just saw parts of it…”


Then I got her point, and nodded at her. “It was great, wasn’t it?”


She looked back at me, and just beamed.
