"Obama ran so that our children could fly."

By November 22, 2008No Comments

From the Oklahoma Gazette:

Standing in line to vote, I met an eld­erly black woman who had her eyes on the prize. She said, “Rosa Parks sat down so that Martin Luther King Jr. could walk. Martin walked so that Obama could run. Obama ran so that our chil­dren could fly.”

I had­n’t heard that quote before and it brought a tear to my eye.
