I love that today we are honoring Martin Luther King Jr with a federal holiday. It would have been his 80th birthday today.  It seems absolutely fitting that Barack and Michelle Obama surprised some volunteers at a high school in DC to applaud their service initiative.

I truly believe our country is moving in a new direction, one we cannot even imagine.  Barack Obama is so many things, the least of which is a black man. He is a learned man,  a change agent, a volunteer, a grassroots politician, an orator, a scholar, a father, a husband, a swimmer, and a president. He is many things and this will serve our country well for the next 4 years and if we are lucky, the next 8.

    How President Obama fares in the next four years will be critical to eradicating racism and racial prejudice once and for all. For the sake of our country, I hope he will meet the lofty expectations. If not, it would be a step backward.
