Obama speaks in MLK's church

On the day before the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, Senator Barack Obama delivered a speech to the congregation of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia.

It's refreshing to hear a candidate speak about hope rather than fear! I dunno about anyone else, but I'm getting very tired of hearing about nothing but fear from most of our politicians.

There HAS to be something more to our nation than this non-specific and unfocused yet pervading fear that our "leaders" talk about so much.

This video is 34 minutes long, yet even with my atrophied attention span I managed to watch the entire thing, and even feel inspired by it.

For me, that's a rare thing.
