A Day in History...Obama Oh 8'

August 28, 2008 will be a historic day but not unlike 45 years earlier or 8 years before that. This day has seen a few time transcending moments already and is soon to be put up on its own pedestal. August 28, 1955's moment left a whole in many hearts, with the brutal death of Illinois teen Emmit Till. His horrific murder was one of the many sparks to set off a movement. A civil rights movement that came to be infront of the world, with a voice in all its beauty by a man and his dream for righteousness to do its damn thing.. as Martin King spoke the words he dreamed of on August 28, 1963 believers hoped and non-believers feared.! Through both we've made our way to August 28, 2008... and histories here! While Barack Obama excepts his parties nomination for President it will be historical, regardless of his intentions or whether he follows through with those he will have showed us all something new. Something long overdo but somehow also right on time... Thanks Emmitt Thanks Martin Luther

"...When a man asks himself what is meant by action he proves that he isn't a man of action. Action is a lack of balance. In order to act you must be somewhat insane. A reasonably sensible man is satisfied with thinking. " by. James Baldwin
