Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.

21 Jan Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday, January 21, celebrates the life and legacy of a man who brought hope and healing to America. We commemorate as well the timeless values he taught us through his example — the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility, and service that so radiantly defined Dr. King’s character and empowered his leadership. On this holiday, we commemorate the universal, unconditional love, forgiveness, and nonviolence that empowered his revolutionary spirit.   (source)

Dr. King once said that we all have to decide whether we “will walk in the light of creative altruism or the darkness of destructive selfishness. Life’s most persistent and nagging question, he said, is `what are you doing for others?’”  An excerpt from “The Meaning of the King Holiday”, by Coretta Scott King
