Martin Luther King's Dream

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.— Martin Luther King Jr. during the March on Washington, August 1963

As so many politicians, history buffs and TV commentators are suggesting that Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream is being realized tomorrow when Barack H. Obama takes the oath of office and becomes this great nation's 44th president, I would like to suggest that Reverend King's dream is also being realized as two little southern girls try to figure out what all the fuss is about! How wonderful it is to witness the innocence of children who truly don't see the color of one's skin or their gender; but truly see the content of one's character!
