A Change is Gonna Come

A man and his wife


According to Callie: “These two boys waited as a long line of adults greeted Senator Obama before a rally on Martin Luther King Day in Columbia, S.C. They never took their eyes off of him. Their grandmother told me, ‘Our young men have waited a long time to have someone to look up to, to make them believe Dr. King’s words can be true for them.’ Jan. 21, 2008.”

  1. These photos speak a thousand beautiful words…thank you…that invisible barrier has been broken….youth of every colour will now know it is possible..they can shed the old cloak…and put on a new one of hope…
    It is our Lord God who places men in authority, and it is God who displaces them…may we remember this and pray for those He has placed over us…Blessings,
