dreams do come true

"....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...."
MLK, 1963

Please take a moment on this holiday, Martin Luther King Jr Day, to reflect on Dr. King's message of equality and nonviolence.

Perhaps read the full, exact text of Dr. King's moving I Have A Dream speech. Or go HERE for a free audio lecture, Martin Luther King Jr: Stride Toward Freedom. To listen, you can download it to your computer, transfer it to your iPod or MP3 player, or burn it to a CD.

How amazing is it that we have all witnessed the historic election and (tomorrow) the inauguration of President Obama, when only 45 years ago Dr. King could only dream about such possibilities?
