Happy MLK Day

What could I possibly say about today that the man himself didn’t already say a thousand times more eloquently?

Most of what I write on this blog involves reflecting on where our country is still going very, very wrong, and why that means we’re in a lot of trouble. But on days like today, it’s worth reflecting on just how far we’ve come in only a generation’s time. In the long term, the trend is positive. And when I watch the “I Have a Dream” speech, I remember why I want this country to reach its potential so badly in the first place. To me, there’s no moment in history more uniquely American than that one.
