MLK and Obama

I was just thinking how interesting it is that MLK day falls a day before the inauguration of our first African American president. It's sort of one of fateful. I await the inauguration of Obama and hope he is able to help our country out of the mess left by the last administration. My friend had a baby in November and he was so happy and thrilled and I will always remember something he told me. He said that his son will grow up in a country where he will never wonder if we will ever have a black president. That struck me because I thought I would never see it inmy lifetime and I did. But now there is a whole generation that will never wonder that. Now if we can only get a female elected soon!!

Have a great MLK day and remember all men and women are created equal.
