If wishes were pennies and I could fly, I'd be very rich I'd be very high

Let Freedom Ring!

To think that 143 years ago, Americans still kept human slaves, and 50 years ago, President Obama's father would not be served in a restaurant in Washington DC, this is a momentous day, indeed.

I Have a Dream

Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was a very great man. Even today, I enjoy celebrating Martin Luther King every year, with a cd of his speeches and a documentary film of his life. It's such profound timing, the first black President of the United States, a day after the celebration of the greatest civil rights leader, another black man. I remember when MLK lived, and when he was assassinated. The world still reels under the influence of divisive influences, but I am very optimistic the Obama election represents a wave moving in a healing direction, for all the future generations.
