Letters to the Editor

Thank MLK Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. was a man who fought to the death for racial equality. He was a man that understood what the phrase “All men are created equal” truly meant. This Martin Luther King Jr. Day remember the man that was Martin Luther King Jr. Thank him for the freedoms you have today because if it was not for him, America may very well have been a far different country than the one we know and love today.

Remember why it is that you have this day off work or school. Remember this quote from Martin Luther King Jr.: “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”
