Happy MLK and Inauguration Day!


Today is the day set aside each year to celebrate a true American hero, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
 
 
 
 
We are also celebrating the 2nd inauguration of President Obama. Despite all of our shortcomings, this country has come a long way since the civil rights movement. MLK would be proud!
