Quote of the Week:
For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin — real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
— Alfred D. Souza

Obama 2012

Well, I spent my morning watching the Presidential inauguration with my 85 year old mother, who still can’t believe she’s alive to witness Barack Obama being sworn in for a second term!
She still finds it hard to believe that Dr. King got a holiday in his honor.

Quotes of the week:
Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.
~President Barack Obama

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
