A Trip Back Home - MLK BLVD.

Martin Luther King Parade 2020  Los Angeles, California
Tomorrow is not promised to any of us….

What sad news to learn about the loss of the life of Kobe Bryant and others lost in that tragic helicopter crash.  God bless all their families as they attempt to move forward from this tragedy. I was just back home in Los Angeles to visit and to photography this year’s 35th anniversary of the MLK holiday.  

Way back in 1986 I had just discharged out of the US Army. I was fortunate and had landed a job working in the data center of one aerospace companies. The start of my IT career. A week or so before the holiday in 1986. Our shift  manager called us all together and said she would need a few volunteers to work this first "official celebration" #dayoff. One of the workers (can’t say coworker) shouted out, “Can’t believe they gave that N***** a holiday…!!!” and walked off. #silenceintheroom.

I raised my hand and said, “I’ll work it...if it wasn't for Dr, King I would not be here”…
