Higher Ground

Barack Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast. It's difficult to take the higher ground, but when you see it, you know it, you feel it. And it is better. But it's hard.

Compare it to the usual National Prayer Breakfast - of almost any other President. He took a very controversial situation - and speaking to a very hostile audience - and did his very best to appeal to whatever good may reside there.

It gives me energy and a little bit of hope again - even in the knowledge that this will be spun and spun. Just look at the video - and grow up.
