Crossing the Mason Dixon Line

As we head for our destination this evening in Virginia, we just
crossed the Mason Dixon Line and a big sign told us so. A chill went
down my spine as I pointed it out to the girls and said, "that means
we are in former slave territory".

The significance of that on this particular trip was not lost on any
of us. What a long way this country's come in a century and a half.
How many people fought, suffered and died to give us the opportunity
to see this man become POTUS?

As we drive through West Virginia (the only state on our trip Obama
didn't win), I still have that sinking feeling that I have when
driving through Fox Point, hoping that I won't be pulled over for a
tail light violation wen my lights work just fine. With all the
progress, we still have a long way to go.

More later my navigation services are needed! :)
