Today marks the anniversary of the March on Washington. A time of police brutality, low wages, not enough jobs, and laws that prevented groups of people from living the American dream. 

It was August 28, 1963 when Black and Whites come together in Washington and protested in justice, no jobs, low wages, and yes, lack of health care. Employers could refuse to hire Blacks and there was no law that said that was wrong.

Today, now, 50 years later, millions of people are jobless through no fault of their own. People needed jobs which is the reason for the March on Washington. And those marchers knew they could be facing death. But they had the courage to march in the face of the threat of death. They brought change to America. They marched in faith, courage, and love, and our government responded with jobs, raised the minimum wages, and the signs of segregation came down in the south. 

I want to ask you today to commemorate anniversary of the 50 anniversary of the March on Washington by setting up a fast and furious job search plan and let's put America back to work. We don't face nearly the harzardous threat as was 50 years ago.

If people could risk death for the opportunity of getting jobs  50 years ago, sure today, we can face whatever fears or pride that stands in our way. I want you to plan today to find a job.  I want you to go in person. Mail out resumes. Fill out online applicatoin. Make phone calls to find companies that are hiring, or at least allows you to come in and fill out an application. Advance the dream by making a better life for you and yours now.
