Change is gonna come! Hallelujah!

If you don’t recognize the more famous individuals sprinkled throughout this video, it is high time to hit the history books.

“The struggle of humanity against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting,” Milan Kundera.

Today is not just a victory for African-Americans. It is a victory for every single one of us, no matter who you voted for. America has stepped that much closer to our creed. “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny,” said Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Our past is as woven into our present as it is our future. To try to escape any of it, is impossible and moreover, frighteningly dangerous. Rather we must confront our past, face its grip on our present and from there work towards fulfilling completely the democratic promise of this country.

Today our hope is renewed.

Happy Inauguration Day!
