Happy Birthday, Martin...wish you were here

This speech, his last speech, gives me chills every time I hear it. The power of Dr. King and the righteousness of his message still resonates. Tuesday's inauguration is a testament to his memory, and to all those he inspired; those who made sacrifices, large and small, in order to do the right thing.

Thanks for posting that, Christa. It's always good to see this time of year.

I'm excited, anticipating Tuesday. Driving back from taking Mark to the airport, I saw the flashing signs installed especially for ignauguration traffic.

I still have a couple dozen "Yes, We Can" stickers, and I'm thinking of offering them to strangers on Monday and Tuesday, when I go into town.

It's a good feeling, isn't it? :)
(Off to look at Ronnie's "Days Left in Office" Bush counter.)

Hi Laura. It IS a good feeling. You might want to save some stickers for your grandchildren. :)

I'm taking the kids to a movie theater that's showing the inauguration live. I want them to remember it.

the girls and I just watched the black and white version of I Have a Dream. I can't believe what has happened in our country in the last 50 years. You should see "Milk". Amazing movie about the last civil rights issue of our time, still out there. Gary and I saw it over the weekend.
