    On Monday January 20th we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a day to not only celebrate his life and dream but a day to reflect on the American ideals of freedom and justice for all.  Dr. King played a significant role in the Civil Rights Movement along with many other leaders who helped shape the history of our nation.

    Dr. King once said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. The true neighbor will risk his position, his prestige, and even his life for the welfare of others.”  Remember this message as you continue to become committed active citizens.
