A Day of Landmark Symbolism

One would have to be obtuse indeed not to appreciate the dramatic symbolism of the nation’s first African-American President’s being inaugurated the day after the the nation takes a day off to remember Martin Luther King.

For this old guy, who as a student in the Sixties participated in a low-risk civil rights demonstration in Los Angeles, and who was teaching in a 90% black junior high school the day Dr. King was murdered, it’s a moment of genuine joy, even if tempered with apprehension about the future under hard left leadership.

The folks at Catholic Vote have produced a video gently calling attention to another bit of dramatic symbolism in as much as President Obama has aligned himself with those who demand unqualified, unlimited abortion rights, and  has promised to immediately reverse Bush executive orders that curtailed federal funding of abortion.
