Help in Patience and Prayer

Should it be progressive

for President Obama
to visit a mosque in Baltimore

and then to tell the people there

"If you’re ever wondering
whether you fit in here

let me say it
as clearly as I can

as president of the United States.

You fit in here

right here”?

It doesn't matter

but the rest of the country
believing that they do

would certainly be progress.
