President Obama And Martin Luther King's Grandaughter

I love this picture, not only because little Rene looks so cute in her shiny blue dress but because of what it represents. Both Rene and President Obama are "products" of a dreamer.

She was surrounded by presidents, senators, a first lady and even Oprah, but Martin Luther King Jr.’s adorable granddaughter was the star of the show at Wednesday’s commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the I Have a Dream speech. Yolanda Renee King, 5, kept her cool as Barack Obama hugged her mother and father and even gave her a tickle as she stood regally at forefront of the event honoring her grandfather’s march on Washington at the Let Freedom Ring Commemoration and Call to Action.

Guess this is a reminder for all of us. Keep your dreams alive; you're children's children will benefit from them.
