Today we remember Martin Luther King Jr. What a great man. I wish I could remember his speeches. I wish I could remember when he was saying what the nation needed to hear, even though so many didn't know they needed to hear it. I can not imagine how he is feeling now, seeing Obama being sworn in as president. How exciting!
I think the entire nation is exciting about our new President. We have so much hope. So much admiration. I am proud that I voted for him, proud that our nation has come so far as to elect a man with a white mother and a black father. A man elected to the highest office that that years ago would have been considered "someones property." This country has come a long way. I hope and pray it will continue to get better and better.
