The cause and effect of a rock thrown in 1968

Nancy Ann Reece, 1968 – Oklahoma City

View below some featured comments by my father, Dr. C Herman Reece in Oklahoma City. We differ in that my prayer for Mr. Obama is to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. – his faith and religion are his own business and only part of the job in the way it shapes his own character – not policy.
I remember the rock through the window and it shaped my character as an human rights activist today.

The Obama Essays: Herman Reece
Published: January 16, 2009

The election of Barack Obama is truly historic for me. Forty years ago, during the turbulent times of 1968, I was serving on the Human Relations Committee at Northwest Classen High School. When Dr. Martin Luther King was killed, I lowered my flag to half mast, and someone threw a rock in the picture window of my home. Now, 40 years later to have a black man elected President of these great United States of America is truly historic.
