Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Today, our nation honors Martin Luther King, Jr. a great civil rights advocate who did tremendous things to shape our nation's laws and people.
King, born January 15, 1929, was an advocate of nonviolent protest and racial equality until his assassination on April 4, 1968.
Let us honor his memory in the truest way, by loving and respecting our fellow men, irrespective of race or gender.
Also, in recognition of the fact that today is also Martin Luther King, Jr. Service Day, please, take a chance today to do something nice for another person and for your community.
