As you probably know, this historic day, when Barack Obama will accept the nomination of the Democratic Party for the President of the United States, also marks the 45th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. I highly recommend taking the time to watch it today, whether you've seen it before (like me, not since high school) or not.
And whatever your party affiliation, take a moment tonight to realize how far we've come as a nation. Be proud.
Then get up tomorrow and make the dream a reality. Because though our nation stands on the "warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice," there are still those who would slam the door.
