On Friday, K.J. reminded me there would be no school on Monday because of "King Martin's Day." I was rather confused for a minute, and then I laughed and reminded him it was Martin Luther King Day. We talked about Dr. King for a minute -- K.J. has a book called "Martin's Big Words" that he likes to read quite a lot, even though I never quite make it through in one piece.
I love Martin Luther King.
I love a good person who changes things for the better.
I am thankful for parents who never taught or displayed anything but tolerance, tolerance, tolerance.
I hope I would have been one of his greatest supporters.
I wish schools would spend more time showing and reading his speeches and teaching about what he really did and accomplished.
I think we all still have a dream.
