Amazing Grace

If you read the Fav. sayings and quotes to the right of this, you will see a quote from William Wiburforce. It says "Remember the Madagascar... Remember that God made ALL men EQUAL!!!
The movie Amazing Grace is a powerful one. It is about the true story behind that song and about one man who was not afraid to fail, and because of that it is the true story of the first country to abolish slavery.

The Madagascar was a slave ship. For almost 100 years it transported slaves in inexsplicable conditions, until one night when the ship owner made a deal with God. It is because of that deal that Amazing Grace was written, and history was forever changed.

Remember this tomorrow as you read stories of Obama. God made ALL men EQUAL!!! Obama is just as equal as any white person. Forget about the color of his skin, and you see a human being just like me. Yes, he is a black man, and yes, he will be the first black man ever to be President, but I know that tomorrow, so many people's dreams and prayers will come true.
But, Obama is just the beginning. The huge step the he is taking tomorrow, is just one on the march to make ALL American's EQUAL!!!

I highly recommend watching the movie "Amazing Grace". Especially this week, since today is MLK day, and tomorrow is going to be one of the biggest, most defining moments in American History.
