What Would Martin Luther King, Jr Do?

Today is quickly becoming an official day of service in honour of Martin Luther King, Jr.  The Obamas are doing some things today, the day before they move into the White House.  Celebrities everywhere are showing their efforts.  Everyday people have found little things they can do to make a difference.

What would MLK do on a day like this?  What are you doing?  If you need some inspiration, the “I Have a Dream” speech is being shown in full on CNN at noon today.

Addition: A comic book version of the early stories of Martin Luther King, Jr.  May be a good way of sharing the story with your kids or students.  Click here.

    Thank you for reading. I appreciate it and I appreciate the fact that you’re regularly commenting more than you can imagine. I have written a bit about MLK over the years.
