Happy Birthday, Dr. King

Monday, January 19th, 2004

Today in the USA, we honor the late, great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He dreamed of a world where people were valued for their insides and their actions, not their color or appearance. I share that dream as well.

It is sad to say that every holiday which gives people the day off (not everyone here has MLK day off but many at larger organizations do), turns into a retail frenzy. I’m working at the store today for 7 hours. I’m sure we will be swamped. I hope that those who spend their holiday shopping, also take a moment to consider the important work that Dr. King did, and which needs to continue without him.

Thank you, Dr. King, for giving us a moment to reflect on how far we have come, and what yet needs to be done. May you rest in peace.
