Today Is the Day!

As I watch the, "2013 Inauguration" I am present to the following traits: resilience, commitment, generosity and grace. President Barak Obama has dealt with challenges against his heritage, integrity and character.  His commitment to all of the American people is clear, consistent and generous.  Michelle Obama is a beautiful example of grace.  She exudes it and provides it for all of us.  Together, they model partnership, hope and incredible love.

This celebratory day is made possible by the extraordinary work of  Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr.  Because King did what he knew he was called upon to do--not what was comfortable, we are all freer and have access to more possibilities.  The same traits I acknowledged President Obama and Mrs. Obama for are some of the same traits King modeled for the world and vice versa.  

Being willing is the first step.  Without will, nothing is possible.  Will, coupled with action changes ideas and dreams into reality.  I am inspired by all 3 of these people.  Seeing people whose lives I can relate to.  Whose skin color, gender and challenges are intimately familiar to me.  I am humbled, gives me hope and  lights a fire inside of me.  This light is pure, brilliant and never-ending.  And, I believe it can only be dimmed by me.  Now that is profound, simple and clear. "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine..."
