It’s the beginning of the year but the end of January. I’m always thankful for every day given me. I’m also thankful for everyone I know born in January. From my brother, my dad, my aunt, Martin Luther King Jr. and everyone else, whether it’s by blood, spirit or acquaintance. I’m also thankful for President Barack Obama’s inauguration. I’m thankful for and love my brother, father, aunt, and the teachings and freedom given me by King, a peaceful warrior.
I am also really proud that this president is going to free 11 million of our brothers and sisters, who are illegal immigrants, from the bondage of living in the shadows. They will now be able to say as Martin Luther King Jr. has taught us, “Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty, we are free at last.” I hope everyone remembers this and that one day, years from now, Martin Luther King Jr. Day will also be Barack Obama Day.
Martin Luther King Jr., for our freedom after hundreds of years of bondage, and Barack Obama, for the freeing of 11 million people who are, for now, in the bondage of the shadows of no documentation. That is one of the most beautiful things I could ever imagine. It shows that we are all soul brothers and sisters of the same spirit, peaceful warriors for the good of humanity.
