Just thinking about 2007 now that we’re ten years on from it. I’m moderately more of an adult now than I was then, but I miss a little bit of my carefree shenanigans and not feeling weighed down by everything. I don’t even know if I’d really recognize myself from then, but it’s nice to flip through my online photo albums and realize what a difference a decade makes.
President Barack Obama, speaking at the opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, “We’re not a burden on America, or a stain on America, or an object of pity or charity for America. We’re America. And that’s what this museum explains, the fact that our stories have shaped every corner of our culture.”
