Today is a day of remembrance for civil rights activist and humanitarian, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. If he were still alive today, he would’ve celebrated his eighty-second birthday on January 15th.
It is important for my children to understand that today is just not a day off from school; it is a day to remember a man who fought for them to be treated equally. For them to sit on the bus in any seat they want to, to sit at a lunch counter without fear, to be treated like a human being.
We can never forget the dream or the impact that Dr. King’s life and death has affected us all.
