The Vindication of a Dream
Above is a photo I took yesterday at the inaugural concert in DC. The man holding the sign is a little out of focus, but you can still see how big his smile is and read the message from his sign. I think many are viewing Obama's election as a vindication of MKL's dream and I think this is indeed a wonderful thing.
With Obama's inauguration tomorrow, this is truly is a special Martin Luther King, Jr. Day for many people. Below is the speech MLK gave on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in 1963. It was amazing to see Obama give a speech there yesterday as President-elect and think of how far America has come.
Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day everyone!
