Listening to Obama's victory speech last night tonight I was reminded of this rousing message of 3 April 1968. Forget for a moment the context or shall I say, the prophetic nature of it. What I mean to say is that I'd like to believe what is implied here and that I had the exact same intellectual and emotional response to Obama's similar message of unity and greater purpose.
*For God's sake, don't think I'm somehow assuming this same fate will happen to Obama. He faces these sort of fears among the general population enough as it is. Those incapable of thinking beyond the literal, please do not rush to judgment.
