we owe each other the world. the world owes us nothing.

it’s difficult these days to really blog about anything besides hanging out with alex. maybe if i read a book instead of playing around on my laptop when she falls asleep at night, there would be more to say. one news story that has caught my attention is that my much beloved cincinnati beat out las vegas for the NAACP convention, and that obama spoke there tonight. it sounds like it’s pretty difficult to argue with what he had to say. it should be interesting to see what mccain has to say to the NAACP later this week.
i’m proud that cincinnati is making this kind of progress. i remember the riots of 2001 very clearly. the helicopters, the curfews, the tension…they happened shortly before i left to live in india for awhile, and they were one of the things that influenced my decision to return to cincinnati instead of moving somewhere else. they made me want to dig in and stay for awhile, because there was work to be done. of course, little did i know at the time that i would be in columbus a few years later. but there is work to be done here, too…
