After the 35,000 person rally in Philidelphia

Walking up Market Street toward the 30th Street train station in the midst of the impromptu Obama parade that marched along chanting OBAMA and YES WE CAN a black Nisan Mirano (I think not entirely sure of make) passed. They were turning off market onto 11th I believe. In the passenger seat was an elderly black woman in her 80s. A young man was driving who I presumed to be her son, as his hand stretch across and rested on her shoulder. Our eyes locked for second and I noticed her tears of joy. I can’t imagine what it’s like for an old black woman who’s probably seen her share of bigotry and struggle against racism and intolerance. To watch as almost 40,000 blacks, whites, Asians, Hispanics, and just about every other race and creed paraded by chanting the name of a black man.. A black man for president.
