The News Room
Honor the Leader. Follow the Change.
" Here we stand 60 years after the time when African Americans were separated from whites. They couldn't use the same restroom. Couldn't eat next to each other. Not even play with one another. Not to forget a leader that we know as Martin Luther King Jr. who fought for basic human rights that has resulted in a win-win situation for us all.
Today as we celebrate his 83th birthday, let's remember where we've improved as a nation; as the United States of America. Just a few years ago, we elected our first African American president, Barack Obama. A man that successfully ran on change and the motto, "Yes we can." One in which symbolizes the bottom line: that we has Americans can do anything. We as individuals can accomplish whatever we work hard to.
If Dr. King was here to see the day that Barack Obama became President Obama, I truly believe it would have been the best day of his life. It truly was the best day of mine. We have made a long journey, but the black community still face great challenges. Most particular, unemployment.
Even said, any obstacles is possible to overcome and unity is key. I want to wish you all a great MLK Day and make sure you go out and volunteer in your community because it matters.
