– Martin Luther King, Jr.
No matter what your political views are, today’s inauguration is certainly a monumental time in history. When the president took his oath of office on the holiday marking Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, he was not only beginning his second term as America’s 44th president, but placing his hand on a bible once owned by the legendary civil rights leader.
As many of you may have realized, it’s not hard to draw a connection between MLK and the first African-American president. This country may have a number of issues it needs to work out, but the quote for today couldn’t be more fitting for the hope that I have for this country.
