While the world's eyes may be focused on Washington D.C. right now, the celebratory mood of the nation was in full effect today at the 24th Annual Kingdom Day Parade in Los Angeles. Appropriately on Rev. Martin Luther King Jr Day, the feeling there was definitely one of unity and happiness on the day before the historic inauguration of President Obama, the 44th President of the USA. Special guests for the parade included LAPD Chief William Bratton, L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca, and other many other local dignitaries.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr would have turned 80 years old today. Mr Obama was 2 years old when Dr King delivered the "I have a dream" speech in Washington in 1963.
