I told you all a few posts ago that I’m living in DC until May. I got accepted into American University’s Washington Semester Program so I’ll be heading to seminars and meeting media influencers all over DC. I’ve even had a class in the National Press Club! We’ll be meeting there a lot. My blog will somewhat transform into a lifestyle blog of some type for these few months.

But enough about me, let’s talk Dr. King! Regardless of how you feel about him, today we remember Dr. King as a strong man of God that lead in the efforts of breaking the barriers of segregation. To celebrate his holiday, I got a group of friends together and we toured across DC all day. It’s crazy to think that decades ago, we wouldn’t be able to even be together just because of the differences of our skin color.

We went to basically every memorial and ended at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Memorial. The March ended there, too!

I’ve seen these sites before on a high school trip lol but yesterday was different. I don’t know if it was the scenic memory of sun’s warmth glowing on the monument, or the many roses scattered on the ground. It was just …beautiful.
I never did anything for MLK day before. I used to just stay home and be happy I get to sleep in. This time, it felt fulfilling.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. – MLK Jr.
