Before I get into me on this blog, I want to take a moment to recognize this historic day. It is historic for many reasons. First, we honor and celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, a civil and human rights activist. While this holiday comes every year, it doesn't make it any less momentous. Dr. King galvanized a nation with his quest for equal rights through nonviolence. He was forward thinking and his efforts are still relevant today as his dream for our nation has not been realized. Many in our country are still working towards it, but America is still a nation in progress. There is no progress without struggle. W. E. B Du Bois said those famous words and his statement also rings true today.

Today is definitely a day of celebration for me politically. Back in August, I wasn't sure if President Obama was going to clinch victory. My tune eventually changed after Mother Jones released the epic Romney fundraiser video. The video was definitely a political game changer, but the road to a second term in the White Souse was still not a slam dunk. It was a closely tightly knit strategy and the president's beat out the Romney team and other conservatives.

I believe I have you caught up on where I'm at and where I'm going. Happy belated New Year from me. Yes it's late, but better late than never.
