I've been hoping that the text of the inagurual benediction would be made public and availabel online somewhere and yahoo heard my plea. I enjoyed the ending of Rev Lowery's benediction where he stated:
"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around ... when yellow will be mellow ... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen."
So I just had to post it.
Hope you have a GREAT DAY!
Peace, Blessings and Laughs
