Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.  Coretta Scott King eloquently defines what the holiday represents:

             “The Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday celebrates the life and legacy of a man who brought hope and healing to America. We commemorate as well the timeless values he taught us through his example — the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service that so radiantly defined Dr. King’s character and empowered his leadership. On this holiday, we commemorate the universal, unconditional love, forgiveness and nonviolence that empowered his revolutionary spirit.”
