Would It Have Been Possible?

Tomorrow for so many people will be a dream they never believed could come true.
Tomorrow promises to be an awe inspiring day.

Would it have been possible without the man whose birthday we honor today?
Perhaps, but I wonder.

I'm honored to be able to witness this event in history. I never thought (after growing up during the unrest of the 60s) it would happen in my lifetime.

Believe it or not: Today in Montgomery, Alabama, the city where Martin Luther King Jr. started his civil rights movement, they will be celebrating the birthday of......

Robert E. Lee.

Officially, the state holiday today is Robert E. Lee's birthday.

It's too bad that our President won't be inaugurated today, to honor a Great Leader, MLK Jr., and a slap in the face of Lee.

Wish I could be there to enjoy this event first hand. Just to see the crowds that have gathered is wonderful. I will be glued to the TV enjoying this wonderful time to be an American.

Someone had to start the ball rolling PoP. MLK is likely among those folks.

i dont think it would have been possible.
but tomorrow will be a great day.
and i gots to add if it had been an african american republican it still would be a great day.

that is something the wingnuts do not understand when they complain about all the "main stream media" coverage of tomorrow.

this is more than a president being sworn in. this is a change in our nation for the better

when I think of how reluctant M L King was to take on that leadership role, I'm even more grateful to him. I'm virtually certain tomorrow would be a very different day if it hadn't been for him.

Even so, we mustn't rest on our laurels. The election of Obama is not a sign that racism in America is over. We have to just keep on keepin on with the fight-- this is a good start, tho. :)
