Welcome to Monday! Well, I drew out names for the prize winners from Friday’s question. I did record the drawing but I’m not going to post it. There was nothing awesome in it, I promise. The results:
- Fiction Family CD – Amanda
- $10 iTunes Gift Card – Kyla
I’ll send both of you an email to make arrangements for delivery of said items! Thanks a lot to everyone who answered, there were a lot of good questions. I’m going to post them later this week in a list form for anyone interested.
In other news, I AM returning to my Why Guys Aren’t Asking You Out series, but it won’t be until Wednesday. I have a big post for tomorrow on another topic. When you read it, you’ll understand why I pushed the series to Wednesday.
Today, however, I give you a spoken word poem I wrote about Martin Luther King, Jr. A lot of you probably have the day off in celebration of MLK Day. This very brief history of the United States is something I think is noteworthy!
In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves to be free.
In 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech.
Two days from now, a black President will be sworn in as leader of the free world.
That, to me, is incredible progress!
But in every day America, there’s still a long way to go. I’m glad we get reminded of it every year by MLK Day.
Dr. King would have been 80 last Thursday.
