Yes, I'm late. Especially since the MLK holiday actually fell on his real birthday (Jan. 15) this year.
But I just wanted to say happy birthday and thank you to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I believe anyone who tries to work for justice owes a debt of gratitude to Dr. King. He taught us that it is possible to work for change in a way that is powerful, intelligent, and dignified.
I know that I fall short of his example often, but I try to get close. And I lean on his spirit for help.
