Music “Monday”: Yes We Can

In honor of a great orator and public servant, Martin Luther King, Jr., I bring you this video about a leader in our own time.

Every time I watch this video, it reminds me of the importance of this moment in history.  These words, and the actions that match them, give me the feeling that this is our moment, our time to change the world.  I am glad to be a part of that solution, that change.

My great-grandmother used to say that she was there when MLK delivered his “I have a dream” speech.  It seems a bit unlikely, though she was definitely an active supporter of the civil rights movement.  Even knowing that there are zero pictures that support this claim, I think what she was really trying to say was that she was a part of that idea that changed the country.  And I think she would be glad to see the result of that dream, and the way our generation made it a reality.  Let’s keep her proud.
