Obama to Accept Nom on 45th Anniversary of King’s “I Have a Dream”

“Barack Obama will accept the Democratic nomination for President on August 28th — the 45th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s ‘I Have A Dream’ Speech. In many ways, Senator Obama’s nomination as president is a fulfillment of a dream — a dream long deferred — envisioning a country where people would ‘not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.’”Rev Jesse Jackson Jr. for Huffington Post

    I watched Senator, Democratic Nominee, Barack Obama give a passionate speech tonight in St. Paul Minnesota and it was his finest moment. He`s a true visionary who gave me goose bumps as he made me believe in The American dream..

    A visionary, who makes the deaf hear and the blind see. On this day, in this hour, in his finest moment, I saw The Dream that was envisioned on August 28 1963 begin to fulfill itself through Barack Obama. On this day, in this hour, in his finest moment, I witnessed history through Barack Obama..

    Who would have thought The Dream envisioned 45 years ago would be the anniversary for when the vision came to past? Today I saw one, from the down trodden, one from the rejected, one from the despised, stand before the world and say, “I am the light and I am the way”.

    Today, America took an astounding step to truly becoming The America that can be a shining light unto the world. On this day, in this hour, in his finest moment, I saw Barack Obama stand before the world and say, “I can be a pillar to truly make America a great nation”.

    On this day, in this hour, in his finest moment, I saw one from the down trodden, one from the rejected and one from the despised, Barack Obama, begin to fulfill The Dream…
