Yesterday the President signed the new "Hate Crimes" law into effect.
With him at the signing were the parents of murdered Matthew Shepard and the sister of lynched African-American James Byrd, Jr.
We've waited, as a country, for this law for so long and finally it's here.
Then, this morning, we find that that same President went, in the middle of the night last night, to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, to pay respect to 18 American soldiers who lost their lives in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.
I know I covered this earlier today in another entry but adding the signing of this new law, on top of last evening's somber showing emphasizes still more what a big change and improvement this administration is over the previous one.
And it's far more that just trashing W yet again.
It's celebrating a much better trajectory and path, nationally, internally and internationally.
This just can't be emphasized enough, for me.
Some significant, good things are happening for the country and since they've come back-to-back, so to speak, it's worth just taking a moment to celebrate a couple of significant events.
Next thing you know, we'll be ending the Afghanistan War.
