Can I Get a Witness?

I am not black. I am not of the south. I am not a christian. I am not a believer.

In spite of all this, I was totally enthralled by the eulogy that President Obama gave for Clementa Pinckney, one of nine victims of the recent Charleston slaughter of members of a black church's Bible study group by a gun wielding maniac.

By the end of Obama's remarks, I felt I was part of the experience, at one with that congregation present hundreds of miles away.

It was a moment I'll always remember.
