Yes, 73,000 + people have filled The Denver Mile HIgh Stadium to bear witness to history in the making. Barack Obama will accept the nomination for President of the Untied States of America!
He does so in a stadium packed with individuals who want change! Not only want change, demand change!
He does so on the 45th anniversary of the "I Have a Dream" speech by Martin Luther King.
He does so on the heels of 8 years of failed leadership, failed potential and mis-use of power.
He does so as millions of Americans have lost their insurance, their homes, their jobs, their hope.
He does so in a stadium with more than 73,000 unified Democrats rallying for a cause.
He does so in a stadium that has welcomed former Republicans to voice their anger with their party.
He does this tonight.
With history in the making, the power of the people on his side, and a demeanor befitting a born leader,
Barack Obama will be center stage tonight and on election evening as we elect the next President of our country!
He does this to define and make real the promise of democracy.
I have hope!
