“Rosa sat so Martin could walk. Martin walked so Obama could run. Obama ran so our children could fly.”

    You’re welcome. I think it’s so lovely. Rabbi Laurie Hahn Tapper posted it as her facebook status, after hearing it on the radio. To give credit where it’s due… My only suggestion: “Obama is running” rather than “ran”. And I mean that in the “working hard” sense, not in the “is trying to get elected” sense!

    I like it the way it is… ran connotes the election is over, he won, and we’re looking back 20 years from now on a great period of prosperity and peace!

    I LOVE that quote! “Rosa Sat so Martin could walk, martin walked so Obama could run, Obama ran so our children could fly” I bought it on a T- Shirt, a Hoodie Jacket, a Onesie, a Tote bag, a Bumper Sticker a Magnet! & More as gifts for my friends and co-workers
    I purchased it all at Click the direct link below>>> or google it or go to
