The moon is rising above the spine of the mountains where I live. It is…
I’ve been saying since March 11th that we are living through an astonishing moment in history. And today marks the first time in American history that an African American woman is a candidate for Vice President of the United States. Former Vice President Joe Biden has chosen Senator Kamala D. Harris of California as his running mate for the 2020 Election.
What a moment to be alive to witness.
There is a raging debate developing over Harris’s race, which I researched before I finalized my wording here because I wanted to be sure that I used the proper identifications in my acknowledgment of Harris. Harris identifies herself as African-American and South-Asian American, as seen in the first sentence of her bio on her website: “In 2017, Kamala D. Harris was sworn in as a United States Senator for California, the second African-American woman and first South Asian-American senator in history.”

All peace to each one of you. Dora
