First off, I want to really thank you for coming out and celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day
...and then we are going to have a unity march, which is a silent march, to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy.
Without further ado we will let the drumline take it.

Without further ado, I would like to welcome Judge Belcher.
(applause)
We must be prepared, because when preparedness meets opportunity, it will lead to success.
We must know how to look adversity in the face, and press our way through, and beyond it.
Today was an opportunity to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
and we had The Honorable Judge Romonda D. Belcher speak
and give her words of wisdom in regard to Dr. Martin Luther King's legacy.
We had a great, a really good turnout, for being a day of observing Dr. King and a holiday.
We had about 80+ people attend.
It was really neet to see everyone take time out of their day to come attend this event.
Each of us can accomplish, not only our own individual dreams,
but we can fulfill the dream that Dr. King had for us.
In doing so, one day...one day, we may all be able to say,
free at last, free at last.
Thank God Almighty, we are all free at last.
Thank you.
