History is well all around us President-elect Barack Obama wrote this for The Washington Times in honor of the Martin Luther King, Jr. :
On the day of the first inauguration to take place in this city, a small band of citizens gathered to watch Thomas Jefferson assume office. Our young and fragile democracy had barely finished a long and contentious election that tested our founding ideals, and there were those who feared our union might not endure.
It was a perilous moment. But Jefferson announced that while we may differ in opinion, we all share the same principles. “Let us, then, fellow citizens, unite with one heart and one mind,” he said, urging those assembled to begin anew the work of building a nation.
In the more than two centuries since, inaugurations have taken place during times of war and peace, depression and prosperity. Beneath the unfinished dome of the Capitol, a young from Illinois swore an oath to defend the Constitution a divided nation threatened to tear apart. In an era of unprecedented crisis, an optimistic New Yorker refused to allow us to succumb to fear. In a time of great change, a young man from Massachusetts convinced us to think anew with regard to serving our fellow man.
At each and every moment, the American people have joined with one heart and one mind - not just to commemorate a new president, but to celebrate those common ideals, share our hopes for a brighter future and resolve to advance our bold experiment.
Tomorrow, we’ll gather at a new time of great challenge for the American people. Our nation is at war. Our economy is in turmoil. We have much work to do toward restoring prosperity and renewing the promise of this nation.
And yet while our problems may be new, what is required to overcome them is not. What is required is the same perseverance and idealism that our Founders displayed. What is also required is that we break free from rigid ideology and small thinking, and together grab hold of this opportunity to bridge partisan divides and deliver change for the American people.
The state of our union and challenges of a new century demand that we move beyond the old debates and stale arguments. We must focus today not on the dogmas of left and right, but on practical answers to the difficult problems of our times.
The impetus for that change will come from the American people, where the ultimate power in our democracy lies.
That is why the events of this week are not simply about the inauguration of another American president - they are a celebration of our democracy. We have made this inauguration the most open and accessible in our history, with the sole purpose of involving more citizens than ever before. And as we gather on a mall, in our neighborhoods and in our homes to begin our new journey together, we remember that our greatest strength has always been found in one another.
For the first time ever, we’re opening up the entire length of our National Mall for an inauguration. We’ve invited ordinary citizens from across the country, welcomed local schoolchildren and their families to the parade, and worked with local organizations to distribute free inaugural ball to D.C. residents and military families. And we’ll broadcast and webcast the first-ever Neighborhood Inaugural Ball so that all Americans can join us - wherever their neighborhood may be.
We’ve heeded Jefferson’s words by involving , Republicans and independents in all aspects of this inauguration. Tonight, we will hold a series of dinners to honor leaders whose lifetime of public service has been enhanced by a dedication to bipartisan achievement, including my former opponent, Sen. John McCain.
We will couple the spirit of this inauguration with the celebration of the life of a preacher who once stood and shared his dream for America on the very mall where we’ll gather tomorrow. Martin Luther King lived his life as a servant to others, and today, ordinary citizens all across the country honor that legacy through the more than 10,000 service projects they’ve created on USAservice.org. And I’m asking the American people to answer the call and turn today’s efforts into an ongoing commitment to enrich the lives of Americans in their communities, their cities and their country.
After all, it’s that commitment to one another that’s always led us forward as a people. Because from those first citizens to the millions technology will connect this week, through times of great challenge and great change, we have remembered that fundamental American truth - that what unites us is always more powerful than what divides us.
That is the spirit that has always sustained us. That is the principle that must drive us now. And I am confident that if we come together and summon that great American spirit once again, we will meet the challenges of our time and write the next great chapter in our American story.-Barack Obama
We will never forget who paved the way for this upcoming historic Moment, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Huey P Newton, Black Panthers, all the Marchers. The people hosed down, the people hung, bit by dogs, beat by police, burning Crosses on their lawns, those that were enslaved, slaveships, getting whipped ALL the people that believed in Peace and Justice and never gave up on the DREAM wow We have come so far so take a moment of your day and realize what went on and whats about to go down...we have a lot to do and The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King JR. was not in vain and we will never forget your goal and your DREAM...I leave you wit a pic of my trip to The Museum I went to in honor of MLK I would never forget that enjoy your day....peace AND LOVE-Playsis

Aaliyah "The Angel" would of been 30 years young, I was a huge fan (still am) of Aaliyah. She seemed approachable and down to earth,and they said she had such an amazing sense of humor and with that angelic voice what a combination. Her untimely death came as a surprise for me because she was so young (22) and I just couldn't understand why, but God got another Angel it feels like yesterday she was here performing and making those hits.....You will forever be remembered and missed Ms. Aaliyah Dana Haughton Do you see how you have shaped R&B in the 90's and how you Timbaland, Static Major, Missy Elliot, R. Kelly, Ginuwine and so many others in your camp invented a vibe that still gets used today....Love you R.I.P

These past couple of days I don't know but all these police shootings AnD no aRrEsts. As if Last year wasn't enough with the Sean BELL verDICT! I for one am not going to stand for this. It sEeMs as tHOUGh the police are targeting YouNG BlaCk males. More and more innocent people are getting killed and with more and more evidence coming in (caught on camera, no weapons, in cuffs) but yet we are seeing no arrests. This is ridiculous and something has to be done...because right now I am terrified of the cops and I feel likE I need to ProTect MYself or I might be the next Sean Bell, Oscar Grant, or Adolf Grinds.
