Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 until his death in 1968. Since 1986, the birth date of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has been observed as a federal holiday by the federal government. It should be a day of community and humanitarian service, and interracial cooperation.
"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with service. Let's give back to our community today or find an opportunity to serve in the near future.
A driving quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for this Office is "Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."
I encourage you to put an end to all of the hate in our world today, and remember the brotherly love Dr. King fought for until his death.
