Quote of the Week


February is Black History Month. So, all of our quotations this months will come from African Americans who have made a profound difference or contribution to the struggle for equality in our nation. For our first quotation of the month, I decided to look to our esteemed, history-making president, Mr. Barack Obama. Here is a simple, yet powerful quote from our nation's president:

"Yes we can."

Only three words, but such deep meaning. What we have to keep in mind is that the "we" in this quotation is all of us. And, "we" need to be thinking about our roles in our lives and what we can do to make this town, this country, this world a more accepting place for everyone. Thank you, Mr. Obama, for your inspiring words and positive attitude.
