MLK Day 2012

I have a dream that one day, ..... little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
- Martin Luther King, Jr. 1963

I cannot believe that this speech took place less than 50 years ago. It took place during my parents' lifetime.As I sit here in my living room watching my sons, one black, one white, play together, I am moved by the celebration of today more than ever before.

Yep, we've come along way but aren't totally there yet. We are all God's children. Those were such sad times.

Our children are our future. little by little we are getting it right.
