Dr. MLK, Jr. Assasinated 40 Years Ago Today.

Below is a text excerpt and the video from Dr. King's "I Have A Dream"
Speech. Everyone knows about it; many have never actually seen it.

"I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and
frustrations of the moment I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply
rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the
true meaning of its creed--"We hold these these truths to be self
evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of
former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit
down together at the table of brotherhood."

May he rest in peace...




"Yes We Can…"

Prepare to be inspired.

This compilation music video was created by artist Will.I.Am to sync with Sen. Obama’s moving Iowa Caucus victory speech. It was sent to all Obama supporters last night by Michelle Obama, the Senator’s wife.
