"Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today." - President-Elect Barack Obama
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther King Jr, was truly an inspirational figure. He brought to attention the many injustices African-Americans faced and unlike some leaders such as Malcolm X he abhored violence and advocated through peaceful protest. He also talked about blacks and whites uniting, not about trying to spew his grievances and hate against them. In many ways he embodied, America's promise in its truest sense that all men were created equal and wanted to see that this dream was achieved. I fully salute him and I think his vision and bravery no doubt played a huge role in the progress America has made in race relations.
Hello Allie! It's been a while since I dropped by. One of the problems is I lost your link. But, I've rectified that little issues.Also, it's been 4 days since Obama took office and I can tell you the mood in the US has changed dramatically.Unfortunately, the destruction left by BushCo will linger on for years. But our new president is up to the challenge, and so to a majority of our citizens.PS: still at http://www.rooksrant.com
Hey Rook! Nice to reconnect! Thanks for stopping by, it's been a while - did your blog go offline for a time?
Yeah, it did. I had some problem with movable type. It took me a few months to get it worked out. But I've been back for over a year now.
