I am an Australian and am passionate about all global events - both current and historical. Today I discovered this most poignant fact, and after just reading "The Audacity of Hope", I would love to share with all Americans, without any political agenda:

Martin Luther King, Jnr made his famous “I Had a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC on 28 August 1963.

Democratic presumptive nominee, Barack Obama, will make his acceptance speech as the party’s first African-American presidential nominee on the last day of the DNC convention. That day will be 28 August 2008.

The exact anniversary – 45 years later.

Please recall one of the most famous lines of King's famous speech:

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal." - Martin Luther King, Jnr.

Do you believe in coincidences or miracles?

I would call this an amazing realization of Martin Luther King's 'audacity of hope'. Wouldn't you?
