Cory Booker gives an inspirational speech to supreme court justice nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson (see here*) and here.
Cory Booker is being:
- realistic (for all have sinned and fall short)
- forward thinking
We need this sometimes (actually, we need this more often than not). I applaud him.
He is not providing practical steps to build a business, solve a problem, or raise our children. He is being inspirational and we need that.
* The full Langston Hughes poem is here. (It is a poem. In a similar manner to Cory Booker’s words, I believe it is designed to be inspirational. It too is not providing statistics or practical steps.)
