Since the Australian Open starts today, I decided to post a photo from the US Open at Flushing Meadows in Queens, New York. I haven’t been to the Australian Open, but I hope to attend a match or two in the future. This photo was taken from the top of Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Today also marks Martin Luther King’s birthday back home in the US. Arthur Ashe, was an African-American tennis player from Richmond, Virginia. He is an example of some success from the American Civil Rights Movement. This isn’t to say that the issue is resolved and I think that is one reason to celebrate King’s birthday. It is a way to remind ourselves that more can be accomplished, while also celebrating the achievements that King helped bring to fruition.
