What an amazing day – the second Presidential inauguration on the day we lift up the life of Martin Luther King Jr. Today is a confirmation of the work we do together as a coalition, as women, as sisters, as daughters and as mothers. In spite of the challenges that we face in the Southeast we are indeed called to step forward and speak change into action.
Our President said it all.
Excerpts from President Barack Obama’s Inaugural Speech Today
We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.
