Of this man and his message, he did have an impact on me. By being resolute in his beliefs, he caused me to think and to search hard in my soul to be sure about who I am. I wish for other generations that they would not have to come to know themselves by learning what they are not but rather being loved for who they are, but this was my path. As a result, I am closer to my maker and more sure of myself because of that inspection and introspection, and while it was hurtful and felt at times like hell itself, I am a better man because of it.
Now that he is dead, he can no longer hurt me or others, and I am glad he will now know the truth I have known for some time. He will know that unconditional wonder that is our maker. He will know the peace and salvation that is open to and for us all. I wish that he had known that here on earth and that he could have shared it rather than all the harm he caused.
Pax Vobiscum Jerry Falwell. Pax Vobiscum.

I have not been to the Lincoln memorial since I was child (according to Daddy, I was there when I was 2). It was awe inspiring.... We are the greatest nation in the world and with our new congress, we are begining to act like it again. Looking out from this amazing place, I can only imagine that this great man sees us becoming more like the unified nation he sought. It was a great way to begin a day of work to lobby for things that are important back home.
