Facing the rising sun of a new day begun

No, it wasn’t dawn. More like 2:30 pm., as we hiked back home from the Inauguration. But the sun suddenly threw some rays through the clouds, and hit the Washington Monument. The final lines of the Black National Anthem hung in my mind…

Facing the rising sun,
Of a new day begun,
Let us march on
‘Til victory is won.

March on, we will.
