One day we won’t be marching

I know today’s blog is supposed to be about wishes. I haven’t lost track of the days I know it’s Wednesday. But what better wish than to live in a world where all of Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream is a reality.

Marching On

Trials and tribulation

Prompted our parents to march for desegregation

Common sense took a vacation

Riots and fires broke out

A King went to Washington to speak out

The Emancipation Proclamation

Has been inherited by the Hip Hop Nation

Many are enslaved in drug rehabs and prison plantations

Picking cotton a distant memory

The truth is bitter and gory

Fools us into telling a different story

Some are bound by ignorance

Because it’s too painful to reminisce

Instead of brains and intellect

We’re praised for the balls we deflect

Stereotypes Civil Rights Marchers fought hard to reject

Inheritors of the dream now embrace and protect

Michelle Obama’s Speech Trumps GOP Convention

Who could've predicted the words Michelle Obama spoke in 2008 at the Democratic National Convention would again hold us captive? This time the inspiring speech was again met with loud applause and approval despite starring in the mini series that the Republican National Convention has become. It looked like we may have a return to an American version of Camelot. Then the bubble burst.  This election season has been wild, and unpredictable. But this? Not a single crystal ball was tuned into Melania Trump  standing at center stage of the Republican National Convention delivering the words that initially made us fall in love fall with Michelle Obama. A lot can and has been said about the unfortunate turn of events that lead to Melania Trump borrowing part of her primetime speech from First Lady Michelle Obama.
