Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day
On this day, we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. Fun Fact time!!! Did you know that only three people in the US have NATIONAL Holidays named in their honor - Christopher Columbus, George Washington, and Mr. King of course. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is celebrated near his birthday which is the 15th of January. And.... in this day and age... we should honor and remember the LEGACY of this man more than usual. With the thoughts and feelings of our country so divided now, we should remember what this man did for the country, not just in terms of race, but also of unity and commitment through adversary and the pressure to keep pushing forward no matter the costs. One quote I want to share with you from Martin Luther King is this, "The Ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy." I feel that our nations leaders should also take time to reflect on King's life and legacy, for you will be truly better for it.
