Then the LORD said to Moses, "This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, 'I will give it to your descendants.' I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it." This is the scripture that I thought of when I learned that Obama's grandmother died. I saw Obama speaking tonight, and this is about the third time in three nights I've seen his stump speech, and there was anguish in his eyes. How bitter sweet a moment in the life of one human being. It is hard to wrap my head around it. I wonder how often she told him he could be anything.
