We Rise

Mark November 4, 2008 as the beginning. We rise up. What better thrill than living the change we can believe in unfolding in front of our eyes with Obama carrying the day into a night of victory? What better excitement than, on that same night, to bear witness to the first win by the 2008-2009 Rutgers Women's basketball team in a pre-season exhibition game, 101-48? C. Vivian Stringer is Standing Tall with a great young group of athletic talents. All of us here are shedding tears of pride and hope, so poignantly expressed by Maya Angelou, who recited portions of her poem, Still I Rise, while being interviewed by Harry Smith on CBS's The Early Show this a.m. Here's the video.
