Honoring Martin Luther King Jr.’s Life

Hi everyone! In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., I’m including one of my favorite quotes of his. This year would’ve been his 88th birthday. I’m also including a short post I did last year below:

Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday is always honored on the third Monday of January here in the U.S. Schools, banks and several businesses shut down for the day. During this time of year, I typically read about his life and legacy. Learning about historical events has always been one of my favorite things to do. I’m surprised there hasn’t been more movies or musicals that are based on his life. Today is a good day to learn something new or even help someone in need. To be honest, everyday is a good day! Any day is always a good day to teach children about loving and accepting themselves and others just the way they are. Being more tolerant of others is what the world needs more of. If only people would also realize love is the answer to many of life’s mysteries. I think Martin Luther King Jr. would’ve liked following any or all of these suggestions. Enjoy your day, everyone!

  2. Hi Keith! Thank you for reading my post. I’ll look out for your post this week. I don’t think I’ve heard of “Hidden Figures” but it sounds very interesting. I’ll have to look for it. Thanks for mentioning it.

  3. Lisa, well done. I will write about this later in the week, but a great way to honor America and Dr. King is to understand what discrimination looks like. We saw “Hidden Figures” yesterday and it is one of the finest movies you will ever see. It shows how three African-American women working as mathematicians, greatly helped NASA beat the Russians in the race for space. Without them, the process would have been delayed. And, yet this was just before the Civil Rights Act, so they were discriminated against. Keith
