  •  That's right, the "audacity of hope" remained (0+ / 0-)

    when the thoughtless HRC (Pandora) opened the box, as in the ancient myth:

    When Prometheus stole fire from heaven, Zeus took vengeance by presenting Pandora to Epimetheus, Prometheus' brother. With her, Pandora had a jar which she was not to open under any circumstance. Impelled by her natural curiosity, Pandora opened the jar, and all evil contained escaped and spread over the earth. She hastened to close the lid, but the whole contents of the jar had escaped, except for one thing which lay at the bottom, and that was Hope.

    Has HRC opened the "Pandora's Box" of our racial divide? If so, there is always the overarching presence of "Hope" that can bring us together again.
