We Can Fly

by - November 11, 2008

Yesterday, my daughter brought home a coloring page of Barack Obama with the following on the back:

Crispus Attucks fell
so that Rosa Parks could sit.
Rosa Parks sat,
so that Dr. Martin Luther King could march.
Dr. Martin Luther King marched,
so that Barack Obama could run,
and Barack Obama ran,
so that we can fly.

It brought a smile to my face.
