A Historic Celebration
Today is a commemorative day of remembrance as we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday as we remember the struggle of the civil rights movement as well as the accomplishment of how far we have come as a nation. On this day we also celebrate the second inauguration of the first African American President Barack H. Obama. For on this 21st day of January 2013, we can reflect on how far we have come and the journey that still lies before us as a nation. As an African American female who served as the Ferguson Township Telephone Bank Training Coordinator for Organizing for America; and served as the Voter ID Law/Registration Education Advocate for the Elderly with Women for Obama in State College, PA. I am elated to witness the accomplishment of our country. I am therefore proud to say Happy Martin Luther King's Day, Congratulations to our President Barack Obama and May God Bless America!
