A Day to Reflect and Pay Respect

Monday, January 17, 2011

Today we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. His actual birthday was last Saturday, January 15. Had he lived—not cut down in the prime of his mission—this man, a leader and hero, would have turned 82 this year.

So on this holiday, I’m pausing to remember and pay respect to our freedom rider, Dr. King.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr., “I Have a Dream”

You can watch all of King’s historic, moving “I Have A Dream” speech, delivered on August 28, 1963 during the March on Washington, here.

Have a good day, friends.
