Today—Monday, January 16—marks a day of honor on our calendars, for today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
It is important to remember people like Dr. King, but maybe more so this year than many previous. After a tumultuous 2016, and particularly the presidential election cycle, we can pause and reflect on what Dr. King stood for—both in his actions and his words.
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
It was Dr. King’s vision to see a greater America, and it is now our responsibility to make that a reality.
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
Here in the Mitten State, the Michigan Community Service Commission is encouraging all Michiganders to participate in the National Day of Service by volunteering to serve your communities.
