Trent's World (the Blog)


Just a quick thought.  I was looking at this AP photo on the BBC site.  The caption mentioned that some of the people marching were beaten 50 years ago.  They were beaten because they wanted to vote.  Do you think any of them would have dreamed they would some day march the same route with an African American president that they help elect?  No matter your politics, this is a great, historic picture.  In this picture you have those who dared to dream and there with them, holding their hands, is the product of their dreams.
