Today is Martin Luther King Day and the day Barack Obama will take (again) the oath of office for his second term as President of the United States. In his inaugural address four years ago, President Obama reminded us that we:
. . . have duties to ourselves, our nation and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character than giving our all to a difficult task.
How many of us gave our all over the past four years? The Sassistas! sense the country -- like the President -- seems tired and weary, but not necessarily from giving our all. We are curious about what the President will say today after four very long years. And we remain grateful to Dr. King for his words: "the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice".
