Feeling like I usually do, that all you do on Martin Luther King Day is celebrate sleeping in and skipping work? Read this.

Good job reminding people about the importance of this day, Anne. My friends and I went to the BYU celebration a few times -- the black student union handed out candles and we walked through campus singing "we shall overcome." It was always very moving, even though most of the participants were white! Do they still do that? At the end there would be a film and/or reading of the "I Have A Dream" speech.

I'm grateful that my public school children are taught the importance of Dr. King. They probably don't fully "get" it at this age, but they can definitely tell you a lot of facts about him and his life and work.

I always hope people realize that the work isn't done, too.

We all have a lot to be grateful for in this country but certainly should not allow ourselves to be complacent about civil rights.
