Obama's Grandmother Passed Away.

May her spirit shine through her grandson tomorrow!

In this context I am using the word spirit in a literal rather than a supernatural sense. The word spirit is derived from the Latin word for breath. Whenever I think of the word spirit I think of my own grandmother and all the positive impressions she made on me with her words and actions.
Margaret Atwood explains how the word "spirit" is at the core of Christianity in the following interview with Bill Moyers. She makes a great point here at about 1 minute 28 seconds in about how the oral tradition moves from individual to individual.
