Celebrating the Life of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today, in addition to enjoying a day off, we celebrate community service and the life of the great Martin Luther King, Jr. Last year we mentioned that the federal government maintains a website devoted to the service aspect of the day. That page is still an excellent place to go to find local opportunities for volunteerism. For more information on the holiday locally, you can also go to the Herald Times. For resources on the man himself, the Seattle Times has a nice website devoted to King. It offers texts and recordings of his speeches, photographs, a timeline, a biography, and much more. For a website that combines the history and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. with a commitment to service, go take a look at the site for the King Center, founded in 1968 by Coretta Scott King. Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
