Just one conversation.
So tonight I'm about to go into a restaurant and I notice that the convertible parked next to my minivan has an Obama sticker on the back.
The black guy sitting in the driver's seat is just finishing a cellphone call. His kid is sitting in the back with an ice cream sandwich.
"I like your sticker. Gobama!"
"Hey. Thanks. Gobama." He stretches out his hand to me and I shake it. Warmly. We look each other straight in the eye and realize.
But I have to say it:
"We wouldn't be shaking hands like this if it weren't for that man," I say. "The world is gonna be a better place."
"Yes it is. Amen."
