Happy MLK Day!

On the day that honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., let's not forget about the principles he stood for. Also, I hope that people understand that he was more than just the "I Have A Dream" speech. When I was younger, I recited his "Then My Living Will Not Be In Vain" speech in church, a speech that told of what he would have liked to be remembered for. It's a powerful and sad speech by a man who probably knew that he would not have a long life. On this day, I encourage people to read more of Dr. King's speeches and writings. Many of them are just as timely now as they were back in the 1960's. We've come very far and we still have a long way to go.
