Hope on!

Here's a convention highlight not enough people saw. First my Congresswoman Karen Bass (at least until redistricting moves me to another district) talking about voting rights, then Congressman Al Green from Texas, and finally a rousing sermon by Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II from Missouri, on subjects near and dear to the themes of this site: on civility and the need for people of different views to work together; on the values of the Democratic Party; on the virtues of unity and inclusiveness; and on the spirit of hope.

Skip ahead to Cleaver (starting at 5:45) if you don't have time for the other two. This speech had the delegates on their feet and marching in the aisles.

(Thanks to karoli at C&L for drawing my attention to this speech.)
