January 19, 2009: Dreams Realized

One of my favorite songs in the world is U2’s “MLK”:

Sleep
Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realised
If the thunder cloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Rain down on him

Humm, So let it be
Humm, So let it be

Sleep
Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thundercloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Let it rain
Rain on him
(Lyrics courtesy of http://www.wherethesitehasnoname.com/)

Tomorrow, as almost everyone in the whole wide world has said, one of Dr. King’s dreams — the dream that a man be judged not by the color of his skin but by the content of his character — comes true.

Whatever the future holds, this is a very good week.
