One of my favorite pieces of music is Yo Yo Ma's recording of J.S. Bach's Prelude from Suite 1 in G Major. The opening strains make my heart sing--the resonant sound of the cello fills my soul--it is sublime.

That's it. After a series of very long and very philosophical musings about race, all I want to leave you with, today, is to go and listen to this recording. Or listen to your own favorite piece of music. Sometimes, we need to remember the sublime.
