HOLIDAY

“Our lives begin to end

about things that matter.”

Barack Obama
THE 
SECOND
INAUGURATION
OF
OUR
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
“..We will show the courage to try
and
resolve our differences
 with other nations peacefully
 – not because we are naïve
about the dangers we face,
 but because engagement
can more durably
 lift suspicion and fear…” 
 
“…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…” 
 
“…Let each of us now embrace,
with
solemn duty
and
awesome joy,
 what is our lasting birthright.
 With common effort
and
common purpose, 
with
passion
and
dedication, 
let us answer the call of history,
 and
 carry into an uncertain future 
that 

PRECIOUS

 LIGHT

 OF

FREEDOM.

Thank you,

God bless you,

 and

 may

He forever bless

 these 

United States of America.”

PRIVATE RHYTHM: BEAUTIFUL FORTITUDE 2009; Catherine L. Johnson;

What do you think Martin Luther King may have said

to Barack Obama if he was still alive now?

asked the “Piers Morgan Tonight” host.

 “What advice do you think he would have given

the president for his second and final term of office?”

Pleased with the inquiry,

 Maya Angelou,

 one of America’s literary treasures

offered this prediction:

“Thank you.

Thank you for that question,” said the 84-year-old author and poet.

 “I think Dr. King would have said 

‘Continue.

Be loving and be strong.

Be fierce, and be kind.

 And don’t give in

and

don’t give up.'”
