Obama’s Speech; MLK’s “I Have A Dream” Anniversary
I am very interested to hear Obama’s acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination on Thursday evening, 8/28. As far as I’ve heard, Obama’s speech falls on the 45th anniversary of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream.” This is no small thing. It is sure to be not-your-average-political-blah-blah, in my view. Barack inspires hope, a hope of which I think Martin Luther King would have noddingly approved.
The speech starts at 18:00 Pacific time. I will be watching it with other Pasadenians at a local city gathering, get-to-know-your-neighbors-style.
If you missed Michelle Obama’s speech, I think it’s worth your time. (And if you’re in a hurry, skip to around the 7:00 minute mark, and listen starting there.)
