Martin Luther King, JR Day



Many Americans across the nation will enjoy a day off work today. I wonder what Dr. King would think of that?

Was it his dream to have a national holiday named after him?

Would he think that his dream had been fulfilled?

Given all of the issues that still resonate across the country I could only imagine that he would say the dream has not been realized.

People are still fighting over the same issues in one way or another.

His children in Atlanta are even fighting over items from his estate.

Maybe on this holiday, in addition to enjoying a day off, have a listen to his speech again and see if you can do something to help bring the dream to life.

Everyone can do something.

Everyone.

What I like about this holiday is that it is a day of service and millions of people give of themselves to help others. I think MLK would be very happy about that.
