In 1870 the states ratified the 15th Amendment to the Constitution.
In 1955 Rosa Parks sat down.
In 1963 Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream.
In 1965 the National Voting Rights Act was created.
In 2008 Barack Obama was elected President of the United States.

Our country has come a long way. With millions of votes cast, voters not only voted for our future, but served the memory of those that came before us and fought for equality for all people. A precedent has been set. One of change, equality, and hope.
