Is it a remarkable coincidence, that Martin Luther King Day in the U.S.A has fallen this year, the day before Obama is sworn in a President and the ceremony for Obama takes place at the same mall King gave his now famous speech in 1963?
Kingâ€™s â€˜I have a dreamâ€™ speech was aimed at how one day peopleâ€™s skin colour would no longer be an issue within society. Obama spent today painting walls at a centre for the homeless and young people in Washington.
Speaking to the nation, Obama said, “We resolve that as we walk, we must walk together. And as we go forward in the work of renewing the promise of this nation, let’s remember King’s lesson – that our separate dreams are really one.”
So I ask again, is it a remarkable coincidence or is it Martin Luther’s once lucid dream manifesting itself in the world?
How the tables have turned these last 46 years. A time when the colour of your skin defined you. I guess the bible connotation is true “The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.”
