Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday, "I Have A Dream" (Video)

When I was little, my mother had a blue album cover with King's picture on the cover and "I Have A Dream". That album, back in the day, was the best selling album of spoken word, EVER.

Barack Obama has asked for today, the holiday of Martin Luther King, Jr., to be a day of National Service. Throughout the day the Obama and Biden families will participate in various events, giving back to the community, their new community of Washington, D.C.

As the events rolls out, I will put posts up, but today I hope each and everyone of us are doing our small part to make a difference, to think about someone else besides just us.

Tomorrow is a change for this country, not just because Barack Obama is an African-American man who will take the highest oath in this country, but change from the polices and practices that were so unconstitutional under the Bush Administration. This change can not get here fast enough, for me.
