Martin Luther King Jr. Day

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” These are the iconic words of Martin Luther King Jr., the civil rights champion who our nation celebrates every January. Though, tragically, Dr. King was gunned down on April 4, 1968, the words of his legendary “I Have A Dream” speech have lived on to become some of the most memorable — and powerful — words ever uttered on a public stage. May we all remember those words, and prosper with the notion that civil disobedience can work. All you need is a little faith and the American dream at your back. Happy MLK Day!

 

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2013 is on Monday, Jan. 21.
