This Monday, January 20th is not just a day out of the office.  It is a day to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. and his impact in our country. The holiday did not begin as a national holiday until January 1986. A couple years earlier in 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill to make it an official federal holiday.

“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”  


Whether you are catching up on housework, traveling out of town, hiking outside, or working, we are remembering the man who had an enormous impact in the civil rights movement and on our country. 


“Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it is a constant attitude.”
