Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. impacted and changed our world. Although we still have many difficulties, he certainly did more than dream. But that dream helped me to be a person of acceptance and has brought many friends of diverse nationalities into my life. I was only 9 when he was killed, but the aftermath of his life is still powerful. We should constantly evaluate if we place individuals into categories and do some real soul searching if it is evident.
