With the hustle and bustle of a national MLK holiday and an inaugural celebration upon us it made me think of what we’ve come though thus far in our quest for change. It evoked memories from 2 years ago of watching citizens who, during the Dr. Martin Luther King Monument unveiling, felt it necessary to exercise their right to be heard. I decided to take the opportunity to lauch a special post celebrating democracy and our freedoms. In the true spirit of Dr. King I would like for you to listen to his daughter Bernice King’s speech at the event. For me it was moving simply because I never had an opportunity to hear Dr. King speak in person and his daughter’s passion brought chills as an echo of what he may have said himself had he been alive.
Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. !
