Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream. It was a dream that many of us feared would never be seen in our lives, no less by our children. How fitting, that on this Martin Luther King Jr. Day our country is gearing up for a historic inauguration that will take place tomorrow. In 24 hours, all eyes will shift to Washington DC where Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America.
Like many other events in our country’s history, people will likely be asked in years to come where they were during this moment in time.
Do you have any special plans?
Tomorrow NHL has a big day at school for the festivities. The children were all asked to wear red, white and blue. There will be a full school assembly and other activities taking place throughout the day. No doubt he will remember where he was during the time. I will try to watch as much of the television coverage as possible so I can tell JSL all about it when he is older.
Hopefully, everything will go smoothly for all of those in Washington DC as our country gears up for a monumental change. No matter which political party you belong to, we are all wishing this administration the best of luck in this very difficult world that we live in.
