Intergration Is A Kind Of Miracle

A few days ago I was at the supermarket. In the supermarket parking lot, I saw an interracial couple. One person was black and the other white. 

A moment later I saw a white woman get out of her car with a small Asian girl. I don’t know for sure, but I assumed it was her daughter.

When you think that Houston, and much of America, were strictly segregated as recently as 40 years ago, it really is a kind of miracle what we see today.

I know much work is left to be accomplished. I know how hard it was to reach this point. But I sometimes think to myself that, in this respect at least, I’m glad I live in these times and not in a time when these things were not possible.
