Years ago, when the Washington Huskies were bound again for the Rose Bowl, a huge caravan of fans drove down to Southern California. A local radio station sent a reporter to provide updates on the way down.
He was overwhelmed with what he observed: He said that this caravan was made up of Democrats, Republicans, African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Arab Americans, Caucasians, Evangelicals, Episcopalians, agnostics, New Age, and multicultural fans.
They laughed, hugged, rejoiced, joked, and shouted in a fellowship of unity with just one thing in mind: love for football and the Huskies.
My prayer is that kind of unity (and I saw it in the conference championships last night), will spill over into our day-to-day discussions and gatherings.
We are all Americans.
