OUR JOURNEY IS NOT COMPLETE

Today is a day of celebration, not only is it Martin Luther King Day, it is also the day that President Barack Obama takes the public oath, for his second term in office.  The first Black president of the United States, is a symbol that in some ways, the manifestation of Martin Luther King's dream has come true although it has not been fully fulfilled.  Fifty years since the Dream Speech and we would be living in denial to think or say that racism is completely behind us, for there are still remnants of racial inequality  in our society today.  One example of this is "Institutional Racism" which is evident in our Low Income Area Schools and prison systems.  I wanted to share this video of Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech with you guys, let his vision still inspire us.  Happy Inauguration day!  Happy MLK Day!
