Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
We commemorate on this holiday the ecumenical leader and visionary who embraced the unity of all faiths in love and truth.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is not only for celebration and remembrance, education and tribute, but above all a day of service. All across America on the Holiday, his followers perform service in hospitals and shelters and prisons and wherever people need some help. It is a day of volunteering to feed the hungry, rehabilitate housing, tutoring those who can't read, mentoring at-risk youngsters, consoling the broken-hearted and a thousand other projects for building the beloved community of his dream.
And it is the young people of all races and religions who hold the keys to the fulfillment of his dream. (www.thekingcenter.org)
