Barack Obama has been elected as the next President of the United States of America.
On August 28, 1963, Dr Martin Luther King stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and delivered his I have a dream speech for racial unity and civil rights:
"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal'."
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
Forty five years later (and after centuries of struggle for equality), the dream has come true. America has lived up to it's founding ideals of freedom, equality, and liberty. We are still the land of opportunity, the American dream is alive and well. Hope is real for the American people. We are a United States of America.
