Didn’t Live To See This Day

At least not in body. What would it have meant to:

Ed Bradley

Tim Russert

Bernie Mac

Peter Jennings

George Plimpton

Yolanda King

Coretta Scott King

Rosa Parks

Paul Newman

Your grandmother

Norman Mailer

Ray Charles

I’m happy that Rachel Robinson lived to see this day. I wonder how she felt/feels. Cue Ray singing a song that begins with his inimitable voice singing, “Oh beautiful, for, for heroes proved, In- lib-er-ating stri-ife,
Who, more than self, the-ir, country loved,
An-n-d mercy more than li-ife!…”
