Today is an exciting day. Not only is it Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but it’s also Presidential Inauguration day.
We feel like it is best to celebrate important days with a little music, so enjoy the video below of Kelly Clarkson singing “My Country ‘Tis of Thee'” at President Obama’s Inauguration for his second term as the President of the United States.
And as we said, it’s also Martin Luther King Jr. Day—a day we spend remembering the man who dedicated his life to working towards civil rights for African-Americans in the United States. Dr. King led a multitude of peaceful boycotts and marches (including the 250,000 person march on Washington D.C. where he delivered his “I have a Dream” speech), and was the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. His legend lives on today, as does his dream of a society where all men and women are considered equal. In celebration of MLK Day check out this post which features a playlist of songs for Martin Luther King Jr. Here’s just one example:
You can also start revving up for the Super Bowl on February 3, now that we know it’s going to be the Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers…it’s going to be an exciting game.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
