    enough to decide what a cool President he could be.   I had a short span when I wished he wouldn't run for the top spot and thus draw more danger to focus on him.

    I wanted him to stay alive & keep doing the nuts & bolts good governance I saw in what he'd already managed to get done.  

    Then one day I realized that I was being stupid.  All he ever had to do to be in danger of being harmed was to be in the wrong place on the wrong day --- while being black.  

    Shocking that we don't realize that ALL black men live with some degree of the same risk every day in our country.  I've lived long enough & in enough places to know it is still true.  And it still makes me sad.
