Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Today is the day we honor an activist and prominent leader in the American civil rights movement. Martin Luther King Jr.'s main legacy was to secure progress on civil rights in the United States, and he has become a human rights icon. In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means.

If he were here, I'm sure he would have been proud to see what progress has been made in our nation. Although racism isn't obsolete, we have a black President of the United States of America. When Dr. King had a dream, I'd like to say that this accomplishment surpassed that.

Spread Love. Live Life. Be Inspired.
