Tomorrow is Martin Luther King’s birthday, and in honor of that I’ll be dedicating a few days to his life and legacy.  Stay tuned!

One of my action points for this year is community service.  What better way to start the year off right and continue Dr. King’s legacy of service than volunteering?  www.MLKday.gov and www.usaservice.org are excellent resources for finding opportunities in your area.

“Everyone can be great because everyone can serve.”
–Martin Luther King, Jr.

“When you chose to serve–whether it’s your nation, your community or simply your neighborhood–you are connected to that fundamental American ideal that we want life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness not just for ourselves, but for all Americans.  That’s why it’s called the American dream.”
–Barack Obama
