When is Inauguration Day 2013: On MLK Day, and This is a Fitting Tribute to Dr. King
President Obama's public inaugural ceremony on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a fitting tribute to Dr. King's life and work. Fitting, but not the finish line. Racial progress has been made, but the floodgates have not opened and our work is not yet done. Full disclosure: though I believe Obama to be likable, charismatic and a great orator – all admirable qualities - I have not voted for him based on fundamental policy content differences. However, despite this, I believe Obama's election and re-election embody what Dr. King worked so very, very hard to achieve: that a person be judged, not on the color of their skin, but on the content of their character; for who they are inside, not who they appear to be on the outside.
