I just saw…

…a very old African-American woman leaning on a cane in a Walgeen’s checkout line.

In one hand, tadalafil treat she clutched a copy of People Magazine – the one featuring the picture of President-elect Barack Obama and his family. The expression on her face was unreadable. It wasn’t triumphant or troubled. It wasn’t thrilled or thoughtful. It was just incredibly intent – as if she were trying to memorize every detail of the moment.

I don’t know if whatever devilry the Democrats will get up to will be worth that moment in a Walgeens, discount viagra viagra but I’m glad that woman was alive to witness the coming of the first African-American President. And I’m glad that I got to see her see it.
