Now is the time!

Happy New Year and best wishes in 2009!

Motivations and hope is what most of us need during the traditional gloomsday of the year.

This year though the hope is higher than ever in the whole free world.

The 46 year old great dream of Martin Luther King, Jr. will become reality.

What a difference a day makes... from today celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to tomorow celebration of his dream fulfillment, the inauguration of the first African American US president, Barack Obama. It is the dimension of the one day now, dilated over 46 years.

The fate of the present and future generations will be decided during these troubling times and true leaders that raise to the occasion are needed.

The Martin Luther King's 4 times invocations of "Now is the time" happens these days and the whole free world seizes the moment and awaits for the magic words of hope.

Past generations during troubling times were inspired by inspirational words like Kennedy's "ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country" or Roosevelt's Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself.

What will be the inspiring words for today's generation?

We'll find out tomorrow!



  • It has been a long journey for improvements on civil rights and equality, and with Obama being sworn in, the civil rights movement have come full circle since the “I have a dream speech”. I hope Obama can concentrate on increasing jobs, advancing education, and the decreasing of our dependence on fossil fuels.
