Oh Look! A Holiday!

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day which means many of you don’t have to work.  Many people just take this day as another holiday like Presidents Day or Labor Day – where they are thankful for the day off but have no idea why it’s actually a holiday.  If you’re one of those people, take a moment to read a few things about Martin Luther King Jr.  And, in honor of Dr. King, here are a few quotes and the video of his most famous speech.  Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
