excerpt from My Grandfather's Son

by Clarence Thomas

I felt their presence as the Chief Justice escorted
me into the elegant conference room. Looking at my
new colleagues as the heavy door closed firmly behind
me, I thanked God for the lives of the man and woman
who had led me there.

Then I prayed silently:

Lord, grant me the wisdom to know what is right and the
courage to do it. Amen.
