Today is Our National Martin Luther King Memorial Holiday

[Every year the birthday of Reverend Martin Luther King is observed as a federal holiday as our country pays respects to the man who played such a pivotal role in the Civil Rights and Social Justice Movements.

Today marks the 35th year of the day’s named significance which continues to stand as a statement and reminder of a life entirely committed to public service.

Martin Luther King Day is also known as a day of service when Americans are encouraged to volunteer with charitable organizations to help their communities.

In Dr. King’s honor & memory the third Monday in January is considered ‘a day on, not a day off’ as millions endeavor to carry out philanthropic and altruistic acts as their personal statements of humble appreciation and acknowledgment.]
