"I Have a Dream"

    Newer Older

    Most of us are optimistic about having Barack Obama as our next President and we look forward with great Hope.

    Barack knows that he is the beneficiary of the work of all those who came before. Many have sacrificed - and in some cases - suffered or died for the rights of others.

    On this day, one day before the inauguration of Our 44th President, we celebrate a special birthday.

    Thank you Martin.

    from wiki:

    " 'I Have A Dream' is the popular name given to the public speech by Martin Luther King, Jr., when he spoke of his desire for a future where blacks and whites among others would coexist harmoniously as equals. King's delivery of the speech on August 28, 1963, from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, was a defining moment of the American Civil Rights Movement.

    Delivered to over 250,000 civil rights supporters, the speech is often considered to be one of the greatest and most notable speeches in history and was ranked the top American speech of the 20th century by a 1999 poll of scholars of public address.

    According to U.S. Representative John Lewis, who also spoke that day as the President of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, 'Dr. King had the power, the ability and the capacity to transform those steps on the Lincoln Memorial into a modern day pulpit. By speaking the way he did, he educated, he inspired, he informed not just the people there, but people throughout America and unborn generations.'

      and hopefully some day, in the not too distant future, we will all be judged by the content of our character. That would be the moment when true peace is possible.
