Barack Obama :D

I remember seeing this speech, year after year, and wondering why the dream that Dr. Martin Luther King spoke of was so slow in coming true. And when the election results were announced, one of my first thoughts was of Dr. King's dream. It's an old speech, and everyone has seen it a million times. But it always moves me.

I was watching one of the channels with election coverage and saw the Reverend Jesse Jackson, with tears running down his face. So many emotional people. It's a lovely thing.
