This Day, A Dream, A Promise Fulfilled
By Doris Washington

One's dream fulfills the hope of love and humanity for all
(Dedication to Barack Obama The President of the United States of America )

A dream has come this day,
Filled with hopes,
To live our best life,
To be all we can be,
Explore all possibilities beyond our most imagination.
To discover our own uniqueness.
To open our minds,
To listen,
To hear always with Love.

A dream has come this day,
With a leader whose voice speaks not only for self,
But for others as well.
Building a foundation
To Grow,
To Prosper,
To Achieve,
Dreams we all wish for ourselves.

A dream has come this day,
To fulfill the promise we can build a world
Of Hope,
Of Opportunity,
Of Tolerance,
Of Understanding -
And Love.

Note of Poem Acknowledgement from the President of the United States

Thank you for your recent note, and for sharing your thoughts with me. Your kind words echo the messages of millions of Americans who have welcomed me and my family to the White House with an outpouring of goodwill.

On January 20th, Americans spoke with one voice, choosing hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord. Our Nation faces serious challenges, but we will overcome them if our imagination is joined to common purpose.

Now is our time to work together, reaffirm our enduring spirit, and choose our better history. With your help, we will renew our Nation's promise to carry forth the great gift of freedom to our future generations, as our forebears have delivered it to us.
