One of the highlight's of the inauguration was Rev. Lowery's benediction. Here is the ending. I thought it was the right thing for a rather sober, but good speech from Obama.
....Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around . . .
. . . when yellow will be mellow . . .
. . . when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. Let all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen.
..And every one of the million and a half people did. ...Amen.
