What Happens to a Dream Deferred?

A well-known poem by Langston Hughes asks...we finally know the answer... Tomorrow we will witness possibly the greatest moment in American history as we inaugurate the first African American President, Barack Obama. Today, however, we celebrate the life and legacy one of the great men of faith who through his perserverance and determination gave equality a voice, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. How appropriate!!!

What happens to a "dream deferred"? It has exploded and injected an apathetic nation with Hope!

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands
in moments of comfort and convenience,
but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. "

- - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
