On Tuesday, January 20th, Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States. If anyone has read any of my previous posts, you all know I am a big fan of Barack Obama!
I think its historical that tomorrow, the day before the Inauguration, is Martin Luther King day. In a historic evening in August, U.S. Senator Barack Obama accepted the nomination of the Democratic party for President of the United States. He became the first African-American to achieve this political milestone and it was on the 45th Anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream Speech”.
I believe there is a reason for everything, and I don’t think its ‘coincidental’ that the dates are so close. I think it is very important in this age to keep the ‘I Have A Dream’ Speech alive. As long as there is prejiduce, and persecution, it is imperative we keep the fundamentals of the speech alive. We should be teaching our children ‘not to judge others by the color of their skin, but rather by the content of their character’.
Like Martin Luther King Jr., Barack Obama is a great orator. But I think he has his own set of challenges facing him, as he gets sworn in as President on Tuesday. I think Barack Obama too had a dream, and that dream involved hope… and on November 4th Hope Won!
It’s a great week for all of mankind. Let’s take a moment and be grateful.
