My heart swam in the vision of orange, my spirit stirred in the cacophony of hooting, praising and poetry. My skeptical heart was drawn, then hit, then slayed. I am a believer now. It was scenes from Palm Sunday the musical, redressed in orange garb, with free water (labeled not miracle), no ass to ride on, no weeping for the city but the rest of it was there. A Sunday, a Messiah, poor people, those rejected by the existing order, the oppressed and the maimed flocking the capital city for the triumphant launch of the Master's program. Yes, I believe.
