Let It Shine

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!
- " This Little Light of Mine", gospel spiritual

All the wonderful little lights in this photo are our future hope. It was the most appropriate photo I could think of to post for Inauguration Day today. This was one of many scenes from yesterday's Martin Luther King Jr memorial parade, a two mile, snowy, joyful march down Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue from Tabernacle Baptist Church to Greater Warner Tabernacle AME Zion Church. Over 2,000 people participated and I had the privilege of marching with the Knoxville Interfaith Network.

Can I show you more than one photo today?
Yes, I can.

Here's my group, Knoxville Interfaith Network. That space behind the banner is where I'm supposed to be standing instead of taking photos. The parade and the snow were just starting.

One of the floats shows what it's all about - remembering Dr. King and, this year, looking forward to President Obama.
