This week we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It is my hope that each and everyone of us who are able bodied made an effort to do something in celebration. Its been a personal crusade of mine to make sure that my family and I do something other than enjoy a day off from home and work to remember Dr.King and the sacrifices he made for all of us.
I raise my eyebrow at those who keep things at a ‘busy as usual schedule’ on Jan. 19. Its my personal belief that unless you work in the medical field or in law enforcement you should your first right amendment privilege and CALL IN to your JOB.
While the activities, marches, song, and dedication lunches may seem redundant they are small ways to say ‘thank you’ to the man who gave his life to lay the foundation so that we can come together in unity embracing our differences in race,religion,ethnicity, cultural, attraction orientation, age .
Dr. King left each of us with a personal charge to do better, be better, and think better of ourselves and others as we go thru this thing we call life. Are you doing your part?
Peace, Light, and Love, Imani
