Martin Luther King (and Inauguration day) - Media Monday

Hello everyone! Happy Media Monday/ Inauguration/ Martin Luther King day! 

There is no better day than today to share this as it is a great

reminder of how far we've come as a people and how far we have to go still.

So, here he is: Mr. Martin Luther King Jr. himself, giving what is probably the most 

powerful, vital and inspiring speech of all time.

And now a few quotes:

Lastly, as it is also inauguration day, a quote from our president:

"I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn't matter whether you're black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you're willing to try. I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We're not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states.

We are and forever will be the UNITED States of America."

- President Barack Obama
