A historic week for America where the dreams of a great leader are fulfilled four decades after his death. Said King in 1968:

“If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you to go on in spite of all. And so today I still have a dream.”

America is nowhere near King’s promised land, but the Presidency of Barack Obama is a fine start.
