I Never Dreamed I'd Live To See

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream, to bring all people together as a team. His dream will live on that all men are born free, for this is how God intended it to be. I never dreamed I'd lived to see, a black man win such a victory. A black man named Barack Obama, stood fast wearing God's armor. He won the race, he is now our 44th president, yes we can. If we stand together and give each other a helping hand, I never dreamed I'd see, this great day, a mark in history.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
