    Dr. King’s I Have A Dream speech is one of the most soul-stirring speeches of all time, is it not? I get emotional every time I hear it, because it is so pure. You pose the question if we think we would ever see Dr. King’s speech come to pass? Actually when you listen to it and take time to internalize it, you realize he really is saying–it took a long time to get where they were, and will take a long time to get where we really should be. Moreover, it may very well be an ongoing saga, with understanding unrighteousness, injustice, violence, etc. have plagued humankind since the beginning of time. But, it seems like we should be better than this–but maybe the level of where we are is a true indicator of just how primitive and base people really were. President Obama called for change and hope too! Change is very challenging, indeed; because, old habits die hard.

      It is prayer that his dream does come true. In these “post-racial” times, it’s not looking so good.
