Each of those ghosts died before their dream was realized.
Now we sit with 9 days to go until our next national elections. This election cycle has been long and rough. However, the chance exists for the dream of our American ghosts to be realized.
We are 9 days away from the possibility of a Black man being elected as President of the United States. Robert Kennedy predicted the possibility 40 years ago. MLK wanted America to judge a man by the content of his character. 14-year old Emmett Till died before America was willing to overcome its racism.
As such, it is fitting that a Day of Prayer & Fasting for Barack Obama has now been called for November 3rd, the day before our national elections.
I encourage all villagers to join me and others throughout the world in prayer and fasting for Senator Barack Obama. If you are so inclined, I'm also asking that you help spread the word.
When: November 3, 2008
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Instead of eating, let us all "join hands in prayer" and give up one meal that day for:
- The Hand of God to move in a mighty way over this election.
- The election to be handled in a fair and honest manner and in a way that pleases God.
- The protection of Barack Obama and his family.
- The results of the election will not result in any activity or events that will further divide the citizenry of this Nation.
