Amazing Moment in Our History

I'm sitting in my office listening to the Democratic National Convention. Whatever the politics, I think it's truly amazing that today, 45 years to the day after MLK's "I Have A Dream Speech" we now have our first African American major party presidential candidate. In a big way, 'the Dream' is being fulfilled. 

I cannot help but stop and recognize the significance of this event. It really brings hope to many of the people I love and serve.
