Song of the Day: Let Freedom Reign by Chrisette Michelle feat. Talib Kweli & Black Thought
Hello all! So I figured since it's a new year and I'm making changes, that I should have a new blog design. How do you all like it? I had to get rid of the music player because it was to wide to fit on the side bar. I'm a little sad about that, but I'll still provide a link for the song of the day. If anyone knows of any other music players for blogs please leave a comment and let me know.
Today we celebrate a man who fought for equality for everyone. I am thankful for the freedom that I have, there are still many that aren't so lucky. Really, I could go on forever about this, but I won't. I hope everyone takes a moment to reflect on the day and on Martin Luther King, Jr. Here are the opportunities for today.
