The Dream Continues


Today, we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for his life of service. He used his remarkable God given skills to help America uphold its creed of "All men are created equal" from its Declaration of Independence. The election of Barack Obama is truly a fulfillment of a part of King's Dream. The American people voted for or against Barack Obama based on his political promises. Very few voted because of the color of his skin. I think we all can sit back and look at this mark on American history with great pride. It is amazing that only 50 years ago, most white Americans did not think that blacks and whites should marry, go to the same schools, or eat in the same restaurants. Now, a majority of whites voted for an African-American to become the 44th President. We should use today to reflect on this stellar achievement in the history of our country. Again, America is on the forefront for freedom and equality. God Bless the USA!
