No matter how discouraged you may feel about the election and our country's prospects, consider this:
The two leading candidates for our nation's highest office are a black man and a Mormon.
Just 50 years ago this would have been unthinkable.
130 years ago it would have been downright illegal.
Today it's just a fact of life.
And a reason to feel encouraged.
