Hola! Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Inauguration Day! Today is a great day to be American! MLK along with many other Civil Rights leaders paved the way for us to be able to enjoy the freedom that we have today. The fight for equality wasn’t just for Black people but all people. It is because of him and others that women’s rights, class rights, LGBT rights and more emerged! So we all should give thanks because he died not just for me but you too!
Let’s not forget that today is also the 2nd Inauguration of President Barack Obama! Oh what a joyous day it is to celebrate such a great moment in world history! I have never been so in tune with what is going on in our country than now; I don’t know if it is because I believe that our President truly wants the best for the nation or whether it is my getting older and just paying closer attention lol. It doesn’t really matter however I am very proud to be American!
