MLK Day 2013: The Meaning of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Legacy

MLK Day 2013: The Meaning of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Legacy

Before us, there were people who had already put forth their all so that we may live in a world filled with more peace and less hatred. And though evil still lives, these people knocked a huge dent in our fight for equality. Some of these men, women, and even children paid the ultimate price for their freedom, the freedom of their generation, and the freedom of generations to come. Among the countless humans of all races and creeds that worked tirelessly for equality was a man who was determined to make a change in a non-violent way. Even though evil took Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. away, his message was one of peace, togetherness, and service. This is a message that should never be forgotten...
