"Somebody already got us over that bridge."

Selma.

"50 years from Bloody Sunday, our march is not yet finished, but we’re getting closer. 239 years after this nation’s founding, our union is not yet perfect, but we are getting closer. Our job’s easier because somebody already got us through that first mile. Somebody already got us over that bridge. When it feels the road is too hard, when the torch we’ve been passed feels too heavy, we will remember these early travelers, and draw strength from their example…we honor those who walked so we could run. We must run so our children soar." —President Obama

(And how ironic that the bridge is still named for a KKK Grand Dragon.)
