National Freedom Day- African American History month

National Freedom Day- African American History month
Where has a dream become reality? 

On February 1, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln signed the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.  Because of the efforts of Major Richard Robert Wright, Sr., a law was signed in 1947, making February 1st National Freedom Day.  As this is also National African American History month, as proclaimed by President Barack Obama http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/01/31/presidential-proclamation-national-african-american-history-month-2014 let us honor those who have come before us to pave the way of the abolishment of slavery and racism.

Today I am reminded of the Men and Women who have paved the way to make Freedom a reality in America. 
I celebrate the bravery of these men and women who stood strong in their knowingness of the goodness of this country.
I know my brothers and sisters, around the country, and I are One and reside in Spirit.
The evolution of America is set in motion through a Spiritual intention and a Spiritual revolution.
Today I look for the reality of the dream that was spoken of by Martin Luther King, Jr. 
And So It Is.
Amen
