It's Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and I've been watching PBS ALL DAY - The Eyes on the Prize series. It's been so long since I've seen it; in fact the very first and last time that I saw this series was as a first year law student at the great Howard Law. As I watch I am reminded of the intense struggles that Black people endured in the fight for equality. I am inspired, as I was 11 years ago, to fight to make sure that the world does not see such struggle again; to make sure that princess doesn't have to live in a world like that. I ponder about the city of Washington DC and I am very saddened by the fact that there is still so much inequality and then I think about the images of Haiti and the suffering that I know is occurring; there is still so much work yet to be done.
Figuring out your place in this world is not an easy task; even as a grown lady, I still don't quite know what my role is. All I can do is hope that I will be able to make it a better place.
