Today is the Martin Luther King holiday...

I wanted to do about post about Dr. Martin Luther King. Mostly the holiday which is named for him I always looked forward to as it was a day off from school. Of course there is much more to this holiday than that.

President's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are all a lot more than days off from school. These holidays we got as students have meaning to someone.

So it's great that American's get a day off for the contributions of the famed civil rights leader Dr. King. I recently saw Selma at the show and perhaps if you don't do anything else on the King holiday go see that movie. Hopefully our young people would appreciate what he went through so that all American's would be created equal.

ALSO, I never had the chance to visit the King Memorial. Then again DC is always a good trip because there's lots to see there so that will just be one more place to visit in the near future.

BTW, below you will see the trailer for Selma [VIDEO]
