In Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is what are you doing for others!” – Dr. Martin Luther King

Since 1986, the third Monday in January has been a federal holiday in observance of the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In recent years, this day as been recognized as a day of service so that folks can give back in their community and other communities as well. There are lots of ways to give back today: volunteering at a shelter, reading at a nursing home, or working within your church. Coretta Scott King, the late wife of Dr. King, believed the holiday was a way to commemorate what she believed to be one of Dr. King’s “greatest victories … his commitment to serve humanity with the vibrant spirit of unconditional love.” You can learn more about the meaning of the King Holiday here. No matter what you decide to do, the point today is to serve someone else. Check out nationalservice.gov for volunteer opportunities in your area.
