Happy Birthday to Sidney Poitier

When I ran across this picture of President Obama presenting Sidney Poitier with the Congressional Medal of Freedom, it took my breath away. Both of these men have broken barriers and faced the cruel stupidity that is racism, with courage and dignity. 

One graced my youth with his wonderful talent; the other gives me hope for the future.
