In 1967, Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke out about the state of our country and its leadership, saying, "We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now." Forty years later Barack Obama stood in the same place Abraham Lincoln once stood, and announced he was running for president because of Dr. Kings words.
