Best quote I've heard in a while

Rosa sat so Martin could walk. Martin walked so Obama could run. Obama ran so our children can fly.

(Unfortunately, the attribution for this quote is more complicated than my tv's owners manual. You can read some of the story behind the quote here.)

That's a wonderful quote, I haven't heard it before now. Thanks for sharing and I'm going to pass it along. I only wish there were more people out there that would listen.
(I've been amazed at the number of posts where the people are screaming in fear becuz of the outcome, some are even quoting their ministers!) Maybe it's more noticeable becuz those people for Obama and his reassuring determination for changing the US, are remaining quietly humbled and thankful.
Have a great day WM!

Well those nay-sayers must be in the minority or Obama wouldn't be where he is today. Thankfully. the level headed and prejudice-free have won this battle. I think what you're hearing now is essentially the sore losers complaining. I do hope that common sense prevails and Obama is given the time he needs to change the world.
