Dr. King's death was not in vain.
CNN is projecting an Obama victory in the 2008 American election, as of 8pm, Pacific time.
Margaret Thatcher was quoted in 1974 predicting she would not see a female British prime minister in her lifetime.
At the risk of comparing myself to Thatcher, I would not have believed the Americans would have elected a black man to their highest office in my lifetime.
Martin Luther King dreamt of a time when all people were treated with their God-given dignity and respect, and while America may not be fully there, they have taken a major step on that road.
This is the dream.
The dream is where an any man or woman can run for America's highest office and win or loose based on his or her campaign, not his or her skin.
On that basis, Dr. King's dream has come true.
