The Walls of Jericho Part 2 . . .

On August 28, 2008 . . .  the-walls-of-jericho-part-1 the dream will be fulfilled.

Dr. Martin Luther King was indeed a visionary. He was able to portend the future by laying the groundwork that enabled the world to witness what it has on this historic occasion . . . Barack Obama is the Democratic Presidential Nominee.

To the neophyte, who succumbed to the political fodder propagated by the media, there were days of apprehension and nights filled with restlessness about which candidate would emerge victorious.

But to those deeply rooted in an unwavering faith, the outcome was already seen through the spiritual eye . . . awaiting the moment that it would transcend itself into a physical state.

For forty years, Joshua and the people of Israel wandered in the wilderness. After crossing the stopped waters of the Jordan River, they were ready to begin to conquer the land of Canaan.

For forty-five years:

A segment of the population clung to the hope that the promised nirvana wasn’t just an ideology, to give them false hope while they were shackled by the chains of oppression.

A segment of the population had become disheartened, and dispirited, that the message delivered back then did not reverberate with the youths of today.

A segment of the population was so disillusioned and disenfranchised that they saw no reason to raise their voices in unity, to assail the very political tyranny, which had enslaved them to a life of poverty and cast them as second-class citizens, who were not entitled to the promissory note pledged by the men who signed the Declaration of Independence.

But there comes a time:

When the manacles of subjugation must be broken . . .

When people must channel their indignation against a system that defines their self-worth or lack thereof, not by the content of their character, but by the hue of their pigmentation.

Dr. King spoke of the expediency of NOW.

The trumpets are ready to blare . . .
