RNC convention

I was watching the convention live today on Foxnews after I got off of work. And I have to tell you it was one of the most inspiring things I've seen in a while. I got shivers down my spine mulitple times. The first was when John McCain rallying us to "fight for our country". Then throughout the tribute to the people who died on 9/11. They had the wives of three people who died, one on Flight 93, one the captain of the flight that hit the pentagon, and a fireman who ran into World Trade 2. When the last one was done speaking she asked for a moment of prayer. A moment of silence ensued only to be broken by a beautiful rendition of Amazing Grace from Michael Rodriguez the "singing cop". There is such a spirit of optimism that it's contagious!
