More Progress for Equality

Something very significant happened within the last year to promote equality of races in the world. No, I'm not talking about the election of Barak Obama as President of the United States. I'm talking about the first non-white Swiss Guard member being sworn in. Since 1506 A.D., the Swiss Guard has fought for and maintained security for the Pope. This year, Dhani Bachmann became the first non-white man to be sworn in. He was born in India and adopted by Swiss parents. To be considered for the Swiss Guard a person must be from Switzerland, have served their obligatory military service in the Swiss Army and be of high moral character.
