Poem of the Month--History is Made

20081105_Chicago_IL_ElectionNight1540Found the poem below on a great blog by Shasha Dichter about nonprofit fund raising. Goes to show that poetry is all around, we just have to look for it. Sasha goes on to include a wonderful poem by Maya Angelou. Be sure to check it out.

"A friend with a sharp eye saw this handwritten sign in a window in the midst of last night’s election coverage:

rosa sat so
martin could walk so
barack could run so
our children could fly"

BTW, to see President-Elect Obama's photo stream on Flickr, just click on the photo above.
