Just a quick thought. I was looking at this AP photo on the BBC site. The caption mentioned that some of the people marching were beaten 50 years ago. They were beaten because they wanted to vote. Do you think any of them would have dreamed they would some day march the same route with an African American president that they help elect? No matter your politics, this is a great, historic picture. In this picture you have those who dared to dream and there with them, holding their hands, is the product of their dreams.
We in America still have a long way to go. Anyone who doesn’t think racism is still a major force here either has their head in the sand or has been brainwashed. Yet, despite all of our issues, this photo proves how far we have come.
May it be less than another 50 years before there is true equality for all people. May I live to see real equality for all men and women, of all races, religions, sexual preference and anything I’ve missed. I’m dreaming for equality for all people. They dared to dream. Now it’s our turn.
