One of the perks of having your children in school is that you get to re-learn a bunch of stuff you forgot, except now you actually APPRECIATE learning it.
And I’ve been appreciating the peaceful methods of Martin Luther King Jr. to make changes in a government that didn’t want to change. Hate and violence surrounded him, but he didn’t take the bait and retaliate. He didn’t give up because it was hard. He moved forward with a dream, and I think we could all use a little more of that in our lives.
So I want to wish you all a Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day today, since I will be enjoying my children on his holiday.
And just a quick reminder to weigh in on my latest This vs. That post if you haven’t had a chance!
