And So It Has Come To Pass

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

It is quite amazing isn't it. I am not so old but I remember that in my high school there was a black section to the lunch room and a white section. Of course this was a 'sort of' voluntary situation not enforced by the school, but it underscored the racial tensions that existed not so long ago. The exclusion was mutual by the way, but still very very sad. I am so glad that this step has finally been taken and that equality as an ideal is a little closer to reality : )
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful quote.

That came from the "I've Got a Dream' speech. If you haven't read it, you should. Or better yet, listen to it. I think it's the standard by which all speeches are held.

I never thought I would see this in my lifetime. It is a beacon of light in an otherwise dismal situation. I feel proud of America.

You can also watch the I Have a Dream Speech on Youtube.

After Obama was elected, I went back and watched it. Very moving, especially with what has happened.

Dr. King would be proud!
