America has experienced great progress both domestically and globally during President Barack Obama’s eight-year tenure in the White House. Under his leadership, citizens have witnessed the passing of health care reform, employment opportunities triple, the expansion of hate crime protection, the end of the Iraq War and many more societal advancements. Obama gave this country hope, but its peace of mind needs to be restored as President-elect Donald Trump awaits his turn in the Oval Office. Racial tensions are at an all-time high and almost reminiscent of the Civil Rights era. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words of wisdom then are still applicable to the injustices that continue to be perpetrated today. Take a look back at some of Dr. King’s most iconic quotes.
