"Let Freedom Ring"

If you have never watched his entire speech, you should. No you NEED to. (on my knees begging) I have never done it without chills that progress into a lump in my throat that progresses into tears. I can't imagine what it must have been like that day at the base of the Lincoln Memorial.  
Wow....just WOW!!

But the work isn't over yet.....

where I give in to the lump in my throat and let the tears drop is:

"I have a dream that one day........little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers"

I just pray that we don't lose sight of the dream and stop working. Never assume all is well or "we got there, the work is done" Our country has made incredible progress which is 
worthy of rejoicing and celebration. But please oh PLEASE let's not stop dreaming that we 
can do even better!!!

Today I celebrate the man Martin Luther King, Jr, the progress this country has made, and I am reminded that there is dreaming left to do!!!
