In deciding what to write today for my blog post, I realized this morning I could not ignore the significance of today.
The dates, August 28, 1963 and August 28, 2008 will combine the dreams of a civil rights hero with that of a determined state senator. Today is the 45th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech, and tonight, Senator Barack Obama will accept the Democratic presidential nomination. For the first time in our nation’s history an African-American will be on the presidential ticket representing a major political party.
All things aside, Republican, Democrat, Independent or Undecided, this is a monumental moment for our country.
