mlk parade 2008

I would have loved to be celebrating at this parade with all these people! There are so many reasons I am grateful for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. When I was 18 and in an English class at Delta College our professor had us read MLK's 'Letter from Birmingham Jail'. It is an important piece of written material that has left a lasting impression on me. It's message rings true in my heart and it's words spur me to love others who are different than myself and to stand for equality for all human beings. And now that I have children I will be an example to them and teach them these principles.
