The hood, the eyeholes, the cape, the burning cross -- these symbols have been etched into our minds, almost universally, as evil.  Farther back than any terrorist or media villain, the Klansman embodies what our society has striven to forget -- and perhaps even deny.

But the question we must ask ourselves is not, "how can we forget?"  ...but, rather, is scrawled under the face: "who would you give a second chance?"

Can you bring yourself do it?  To ask it?  On this of all days, September 11, 2011?

Because if you can -- if we can, then grace has won.  Love has won.  We all have won.

We are People of the Second Chance, and we are bold with our grace.
