I shudder to think of how the world would look and how we would all interact with one another if it were not for the life, struggle, and death of Martin Luther King Jr. He consistently sacrificially put his life in the way of danger during a time when it was more overtly okay to hate because of the color of one’s skin.
“In 1983 President Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) signed a bill creating a U.S. federal holiday in honor of King. Observed on the third Monday of January, it was first celebrated in 1986” (History.com Staff, 2009).
Please join me in celebrating the life of Martin Luther King Jr.
