A special MLK Day video for President Obama, comparison to Trump

Happy MLK Day! 
I did this video in honor of MLK Day and to remind us of what we are losing come Jan. 20. Attending the historic inauguration ceremony of President Barack Obama in 2009 with my then-young kids, ex-wife, and a friend was one of the best experiences of my life.

There were some two million of us from all races and backgrounds crammed onto the National Mall, most watching on large screens. Despite the cold and being in the midst of the worst recession since the Great Depression, caused by the Republicans, we were united in hope. We didn't feel the cold or the effects of the recession on that day. Obama gave us hope, and he has delivered despite being blocked by Republicans on almost everything.

Obama was not perfect, of course, but even many Trump supporters will one day see him as a far better president than their candidate. As he leaves and Trump takes over, we must continue to resist. We must remember what Dr. King once said, "Never be afraid to do what's right."

This video is on Facebook here and on YouTube here. It is only for personal use. Feel free to share.
