President Obama Swearing In 2013
Today is historical in two ways. One, it is our nation's national holiday for the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr. His prophetic words are still as relevant to our times now as they were when he said them. I hope and pray the world takes heed.
Secondly, today marks the swearing in of President Barack Obama's second term! How fitting that our first, non-white President is inaugurated on the national holiday in honor of a black man who fought for justice for all races, creeds, religions, etc. Now, of course, President Obama has spoken up today on behalf of all the gay men and women in this nation. Another first. I tell you, the man is a walking, talking, breathing FIRST. God bless him. God bless this nation. And God bless Kelly Clarkson for singing, "My Country 'Tis Of Thee," so beautifully!
"A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus."
