The Day the Tide Came In

His feet got wet.

One thousand years later, on a Wednesday afternoon in a subtropical city called Miami, another tide came in. On a day of national Thanksgiving, the robes of the seven monarchs whose order was intended to stop an electoral tide got wet.

"We cannot work 24 hours a day," said the man overseeing the many hands recounting the votes, not a single one of which was cast for a monarch.

Time had entered space and with it came the reality that there was not enough time to steal an election.

Something else crashed in on the process: protesters. Hundreds of them, many of them the same Cuban-Americans who last Thanksgiving gathered outside the refuge of a boy named Elian. I know their faces, as I saw them outside Elian's home as a reporter for NewsMax.

These folks got very vocal yesterday when Democrat operatives tried to transport a portion of the ballots to an upstairs room where press and public could not see what was going on.

"Stop the fraud!" screamed the crowd, and the move to hidden quarters stopped.

Those who last Thanksgiving did not understand the motives of the Elian faithful may understand them now. Their tired eyes saw a boy taken, in violation of the law, by Democrats in power. They were not going to let an election be taken as well. "Stop the fraud!" contained echoes of "Save the boy!"

Many of the Cubans in the crowd came ashore in this country on the tide, and yesterday they felt its pull again.

President Lincoln made Thanksgiving an official holiday, a national day of prayer. He was the counter-Canute, if you will. He ordered the tide of prayer to come in, and the tide came in. It comes in still, as Lincoln, a man of faith, knew it would.

But it was the Pilgrims who first celebrated Thanksgiving here.

The Pilgrims, immigrants all, rode the tides and rode their prayers to a land where this day freedom still laps our shores.
