New To Me

I saw this quote in a store window Saturday:

Rosa sat so Martin Luther could walk
Martin Luther walked so Obama could run
Obama ran so all the children could fly

In doing my research to see who said this it turns out Jay-Z paraphrased after the election in 2008. The real quote is a little different and was said by Cleo Fields in Feb of 2008. He was a former Congressman and a member of the State Senate of Louisiana.

Anyway, I thought it was clever and inspirational and even though it has been around for over a year now, it was new to me!
