A new cartoon every Friday, plus special days!

On Monday, January 16, Americans will honor the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. We all know that Dr. King was vocal in the fight for civil rights, but he did a lot more than just give speeches. 

His messages had impact because they were more than just words. He lived them and never gave up the fight for justice and freedom for everyone. He chose to spend his time serving. He brought hope and healing to America, and his legacy continues to inspire and motivate me in so many ways. He was an honorable man. He is my hero.

On Monday, because it is MLK Day, if you are a working person, you probably will have the day off. You might start the day by sleeping in and then doing chores around the house. You might go shopping. You might spend time with family or take a little “me” time to spoil yourself at a spa. There are tons of things that you can do on your day off.

But, promise me that on Monday, no matter what you have planned, you will take some time to reflect on the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., and all that he did for people everywhere. For you. Perhaps you’ll use this day to honor King by offering your help at a shelter, hospital, or even a prison. Maybe you could mentor a child who is struggling or help out at a soup kitchen. These are the kinds of things that King did, and maybe it is time for all of us to pay it forward.

King was a great man and deserves our respect and our action.

Join me in celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., because the world is a better place because he lived.

“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.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
