Celebrating MLK Jr. Day

Monday, January 21st, 2019 at 9:39 pm

One of my bookish goals this year was to check out a book from the “Holiday” section at our library for each holiday of the year.

Holiday #1 is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

The kids and I read four books about Martin Luther King, Jr. – and I learned just how very little I knew about the civil rights movement.

I’ll fix that further as time goes by.

For now, we’re rejoicing in the gains the civil rights movement has made – and praying for an end to the continued malice and distrust between races.

Because we agree with Dr. King’s dream.

It is our dream too.

“I have a dream… that one day right here… little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.”

~Martin Luther King, Jr.
