I thought about MLK alot yesterday watching the Tribute at the Lincoln Memorial....that he was smiling down from above...watching all those people..swaying to the music, united in what brought them to this place in time...This Fierce Urgency of Now and a New President.... That Change was Gonna Come.....That we would and could come Together...As One People.
"Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals."
