Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair.
Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just.
And make me an instrument of your will.”
This is quite moving but then I wonder how it got "out there." Did someone run up behind him and snag it from the wall? That ain't right. It's his business with God. And then the skeptic in me wonders if one of his people snagged and put it out there because they want their guy to win. In any case, I appreciate the peak into Obama's spiritual life but feel like a bit of a voyeur reading it.

Moses climbed up on the mountaintop,
So we pitched our tents and set up our cots,
And Moses came back with lots of 'Thou Shalt Nots'
Forty years later, it's comin' to an end;
The promised land was just around the bend.
So Moses climbed up on the mountainside,
And after he saw it, ol' Moses died.

There are quite a few features that make it particularly unique one of which is the fact that Great Lakes freighters & ocean liners pass in front. Having grown up w/ these beasts we were schooled in the beauty of them though they are dirty masses of steel and equipment. In any case...I have a tremendous appreciation for beauties like these.
