If you haven't already heard Obama's latest speech discussing race in this country, Alternet has a good one Politics Unusual: Obama Abandons Blame Game in Sophisticated Discussion of Race that includes the video of the speech. I encourage each and every one of you to listen to the video...and then listen again and again until you truly understand what this awesome man is really saying. I have never in my long life heard one man epitomize such true grace, dignity and eloquence when speaking about healing racial disparities. I honestly never thought I would see it in my lifetime.
In stumbling around this morning I found a pretty cool site for all of us "visual" learners out there. It's not totally free which is not in keeping with the basis of my site but you can try it out for free. It is Thinkmap Visual Thesaurus.

It is interactive so you can slide your mouse over each one of the circles for a more detailed definition of the word. It is so cool! I love new toys, especially word toys :) Have a Great Day and as always Happy Searching!
