King Holiday

Monday, January 21, 2013

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! Today, all of America celebrates the man who worked so hard to help bring about the changes that we each enjoy now. He believed that this country was capable of living out "the true meaning of its creed," and he was willing to put everything on the line--his own life--to make that a reality.

I remember when, as a high school student, Dr. King's birthday became a holiday. Shortly thereafter, several entertainers came together to create a video in honor of the historic occasion. I showed this video to some of my classes Friday. Enjoy the flashback.
