I spent this past weekend in the small town of Mound Bayou, MS with some of my extended family. With it being MLK weekend, I couldn’t help but to think about the many sacrifices made by people just a few generations before me for the sake of civil rights. My heart warmed as I watched two little girls, one black and one white, share a church pew and play together. The sight of them, sitting with their heads touching as they played a game on an Ipad, confirmed what I already knew: Dr. King’s dream has become a reality. I’m so glad I’m alive to see it.
I hope you all have a wonderful day remembering Dr. King’s legacy!
I’m going to see Selma later this evening. What are your plans for MLK day? Did you participate in any community service this weekend?
