It’s a bit late for this, but I like to write a post each year about Martin Luther King Jr. Day. As a progressive, social equality is very important to me. We all have the right to be who we are. As a child, learning about Dr. King’s work in the Civil Rights Movement inspired me. One thing that I take away from his example is that we should all live together in harmony and peace. I learned that even when something seems impossible, you can’t give up.
Today was Inauguration Day and I am excited to see what the next four years will bring. I missed it this morning, woke up at 9:30 am PST, but I saw some of the highlights. It was truly a historic day and I am proud of how far we have come as a nation. There may still be progress to be made, but I believe we can become the more perfect union that our founding fathers imagined!
