Martin Luther King Jr Day

On this day, I am reminded of the sacrifices and the perseverance of those whom came before me. I am thankful for their journey and all that is because of all that they did. We cannot forget and we cannot stop. We must continue to work to carry those efforts forward in an effort to continue to make this world into the beautiful place we dream and wish it to be. Tomorrow, when Obama is sworn in, we will be part of a historic moment that truly represents the progress that has been made. I am thankful to be able to be a part of these times and I hope that everyone takes time to not just enjoy the day off but to take at least a moment to appreciate why today is special.
