Inauguration Day and MLK Day Thoughts

“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get to where we are today, but we have just begun. Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today.” – President Barack H. Obama

Edited because I wasn’t looking closely enough at the clip I posted yesterday. Our national anthem is hard to sing, and Beyonce knocked it out of the park. No way that she lip-synced.
