"Make a career of humanity...and you will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in" - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Although I've never been very sentimental, the inauguration today was a moment in time that means more to me than I can probably ever fully express. Aretha..seeing Muhammad Ali and the Tuskegee Airman, and..all...the...people...united in spirit.
Here are a few links I want to share:

I also fully appreciated the understanding that Obama demonstrated in his speech. I know many may not have heard what they wanted to hear, but I think if we listened, we heard what we needed to hear.
But my favorite part of the day by far was the benediction given by Reverend Lowery. I am extremely grateful to him for including words from the Black National Anthem in his prayer today. And, you gotta love how he ended it :-) Real Hip Hop...Keepin' it real...at all times!
