The best Obama Quote
= Sunday, February 8, 2009 =
"We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a change to pursue their full measure of happiness." - President Barack Obama (January 20, 2009)
...it simply almost brought me to tears! I now cross my fingers in the hopes that we all made the right decision.
And this post is also to celebrate today in History, February 8, 1865, as Martin Robinson Delany
was commissioned as the first black Major in the U.S. Army.
...And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
