    What a treat this must have been for Mr. Edwards to have a Black president or this country shake his hand. I am sure he has memories very near of past slavery in his family. Hopefully someone has documented some of his memories so that real-life history is not lost. It is by word-of-mouth that those long, bloody voyages from Africa were kept alive. President Obama has an equally grateful and respectful look on this face. This is my honored heritage in two stages many, many years apart. I am so glad Mr. Edwards lived to witness this Change.

    Poignant……what a remarkable moment for both the President and Mr. Edwards.

    Nice moment, special moment. Mr. Edwards knew what it was like for a black man to grow up here in this country. But despite it all you can see the pride on Mr. and Mrs. Edwards face. Touching moment I’m sure.
