This year two big events fall on the same day: President Obama’s second inauguration and Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In Washington, D.C., President Barack Obama is being publicly sworn-in for a second term (he’s being privately sworn-in the day before). In the Portland area, the 28th annual “Keeping Alive the Dream” tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. takes place at the New Beginnings Conference Center, sponsored by the World Arts Foundation, Inc. We’ll be asking some in attendance about what they’re hoping for in the next four years, both from Obama’s second term and from their local leaders and in the community.
What are you hoping for from the next four years? What does “Keep Alive the Dream” mean to you?
