While driving people to the polls today, I decided to visit the Kennedy-King memorial in Indianapolis this afternoon.

It seemed appropriate.

If you’re not familiar with the history of the memorial or the history of MLK and RFK in Indy, consider these words from the plaque on the site:

Kennedy urged the crowd to follow Rev. King’s lead and respond with understanding and prayer. Citing the need to avoid division, hatred, and violence, he called for love, wisdom, compassion, and justice. The speech is credited with keeping Indianapolis calm, while other cities reacted with violence.

It seems to me that President-elect Obama carries on the dreams of RFK and MLK.

I don’t think I’ve ever been more proud to be an American than I am right now.
