Obama can help make King's dreams come true
The Kansas City Star
President Barack Obama’s inauguration speech on Monday was the second edition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
In August of 1963, King was looking over into the Promised Land from the platform of the U.S. Constitution. He was one of the messengers of the Civil Rights Movement anointed to challenge the conscience of America’s power elite.
Obama’s generation has enjoyed some of the fruits of the Promised Land but he understands that there is more work to be done.
It will be interesting to see if the policies enacted during Obama’s second term will bring America closer to the fulfillment of King’s dream.
