2009 Is Just The Beginning Of The Dream

it seems fitting that we celebrate mlk day this year in prelude to the inauguration of our 44th president, barack obama, the first african american elected to lead america. there have been plenty of references to dr. king’s historical “i have a dream” speech in consideration of the significance and promise of the incoming obama administration- and rightfully so. yet, its true significance is in the fact the dream is just beginning- not just for one group, but also for the whole nation. even the world.

in spite of tumultuous happening in just about every facet of our society, we have an amazing opportunity to help ourselves by helping those around us. president-elect obama has touched on this throughout his campaign and in weeks leading up to tomorrow’s inauguration. it’s not a new idea, but one that will be re-invigorated through the hope and optimism that colors the mood of the country in anticipation of change for the better.

read what dr. king said during a speech presented in 1957.

as a nation, we can do whatever we collectively make up our minds to achieve. hopefully that will be to stand united and to serve united.
