Quote of the Day

From a NewsHour interview with 105-year old Ella-Mae Johnson who attended yesterdays inaguration of Barack Obama... (click here for the whole interview)

I hope the time comes when we can just be who we are and not worry or believe that, if we call ourselves something else, we'll get better attention, better treatment.

I hope that we get to the point, not because we're Christians or Jews or Muslims, but because we're human. And we want to be treated, we need to be treated, not one taking advantage, but all recognizing that there won't be peace -- there may be quiet or silence -- but it won't be peace.

That's the wisdom of 105 years... I think we'd all do well to shut up and listen.
