To do: "We shall overcome." (Nov. 4th, 2008: another step in the right direction)

No longer, Jim Crow.

From the green lawns of the District of Columbia, let freedom ring.

Even if you didn't vote for Obama, you've gotta may have taken us a while, but 45 years later, Dr. King's dreams are being realized.

And I think that's pretty darn amazing.

"And when this happens, when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: 'Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!'" --Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., August 28, 1963

God bless America!
