Meditations on Inauguration 2013

On Martin Luther King Day 2013
Obama is sworn in for the second time
Renewing hope and reminding children
Color — white, black, brown, beige, yellow, red
Is no longer a barrier to possibility
The dream of equality
Becoming a more tangible reality each day
Proof, this Latina thought with pride,
Was the history being made before our eyes
As Cuban-American poet, Richard Blanco,
Read his poem of unity, belonging and hope.
As Sonia Maria Sotomayor, Associate Justice
of the Supreme Court of the United States
swore in Vice President Joseph Biden and
as my 6 year old completed his homework
an illustration of his understanding
of King’s message:

peace + love = happiness for all people of all colors (FYI - those 4 people of 4 different shades are his family!!)

peace + love = happiness for all people of all colors (FYI – those 4 people of 4 different shades are his family!!)
