A Dream Realized

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Lincoln Memorial, Washington, D.C.

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!"

- excerpt from the "I Have a Dream" speech delivered August 28th, 1963

Imagine having a dream that would not be realized in your lifetime, a dream you would give your life for, finally come to fruition. I hope that tomorrow's inauguration of Barack Obama is the realization of, at least part of, the dream Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned for our nation forty six years ago. Let us hope we are on the march again toward that vision.
