MLK Day and honoring Dr King

Today is Martin Luther King Day. A Federal holiday I look forward to each year.

The things that Dr King had to say came from a different context, a different time. Nevertheless, his speeches and his writings are very relevant today.

If you're looking to get beyond the handful of well-known speeches by MLK and get deeper into his writings, this article by Katie Dupere is a good place to start:

Setting aside a day for Americans to honor Dr King is one of the best things to have come out of the Reagan Administration.

And it's a good time for all Americans to focus attention on this giant in the history of our Nation and to resolve to help carry forward his life's work.
