Happy Memorial Day! As we honor our Veterans …

“Today is the day we put aside to remember fallen heroes and to pray that no heroes will ever have to die for us again. It’s a day of thanks for the valor of others, a day to remember the splendor of America and those of her children who rest in this cemetery and others. It’s a day to be with the family and remember.” (Reagan,1968).

As we honor our veterans on this day, have a happy and safe Memorial Day from the Imperfect Org!

Honoring the life of “Martin Luther King Jr”

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.
