Today marks the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.‘s famous “I Have A Dream” speech that he delivered in Washington, DC on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963. Today’s anniversary of this moving occasion just happens to be the day that Barack Obama, in a history-making moment as the first black candidate of a major political party, will accept the Democratic Party‘s nomination for president in the 2008 presidential election.

Obama, who is both black and white, is expected to deliver his acceptance speech this evening in Denver, CO, during the last day of the Democratic National Convention. A milestone like this was inconceivable when MLK, Jr. gave his speech forty-five years ago. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous speech as been voted the top political speech of the 20th century by AmericanRhetoric.com. Some of the most famous lines from the Dream speech came near the very end of it and include: “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.”I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of “interposition” and “nullification” — one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.”

I visited the Lincoln Memorial this summer and was quite moved by monument and the inscriptions of Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address on the South Chamber wall and his second inaugural address on the North Chamber wall. I got choked up reading the text of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address out loud (quietly) to my two daughters. Americans such as Barack Obama and John McCain continue to serve this nation and further the ideals of our great country. I am proud and thankful to be an American.
