In a few short days, an African American man will move from his private residence into a much larger and more expensive one owned not by him but by the taxpayers. A vast lawn, a perimeter fence and many well trained security specialists will insulate him from the rest of us but the mere fact that this man will be residing in this house should make us all stop and count our blessings - because it proves that we live in a nation where anything is possible.<br>

Many believed this day would never come. Most of us hoped and prayed that it would, but few of us actually believed we would live to see it. Racism is an ugly thing in all of it's forms and there is little doubt that if this man had moved into this house fifteen years ago, there would have been a great outcry - possibly even rioting in the streets.<br>
<br>
Today, we can all be grateful and proud that no such mayhem will take place when he takes up residency. It's much more than a simple change of addresses for him - it's proof of a change in our attitude as a nation. It is an amends of sorts - the righting of a great wrong. It's a symbol of our growth, and our willingness to judge a man not by the color of his skin but by the content of his character.<br>

Finally, justice served for OJ Simpson.
