"‘I Have A Dream’"

Forty-five years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. inspired a nation with these famous words: “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’ … I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Watch it:

Forty-five years later, though still incomplete, America has moved gradually towards realizing King’s dream. In Denver tonight, Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) will become the first African-American to accept the presidential nomination of a major party.
