In the vast, vast panorama of Humanity's struggle on this planet, I do not have to re-member the tiny tiny event of a half white and half black brother being elected by the People to be the President of the currently most powerful nation on the Planet. The event lives within my consciousness along with a many other tiny, tiny moments in the thousands and thousands of tiny triumphs that has moved Humanity to this point.
The significance of President Obama's election was/is that human beings saw and elected another human being. It was/is the Presidents Humanity that the People at long last were able to see and understand. It was "the quality of his character not the color of his skin" with which Human Beings resonated.
That tiny, tiny event in the Great Unfolding is of the same frequency and power, has the same significance as the the signing of our constitution.
It was a world wide and unimaginable defeat of the forces of retrogression, greed, exclusivity and separation by the People. It engendered the vicious backlash that we have seen carried out by those forces of darkness which have been masquerading as Republicans over the past few decades.\
The aberration of the election of these forces will be short lived. Humanity has turned a significant corner in its evolution. The day of the greed of the few over the humanity of the rest is over. It was never in doubt. The pantheon of heroes over the centuries such as MLK always knew the triumph was unavoidable and inevitable.
