In Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Eighty-seven years ago today, a great American, humanitarian, and civil rights activist was born; Martin Luther King, Jr.  In his far-too-short life, the Reverend Dr. King appealed to the conscience of our nation, held our great country to its highest ideals, and challenged all of us to see, and treat, each other as brothers and sisters.  This weekend, as we honor Dr. King and the movement he came to represent, let us also recommit ourselves to the ongoing pursuit of his dream: a world of equality and justice for all.
