Happy MLK Day.

Even though it's no longer MLK day I thought I'd wish everyone a happy one anyway. MLK was a man that stood up for his principles and was willing to die for them. I feel sure he knew that standing up for what he believed in would not be popular and may get him killed (which it did.) He did it anyway because he understood that his actions could affect generations of people that would come after him. Partly because of his courage we elected our first black President this year. However Obama is no Martin Luther King Jr. He's also not Abraham Lincoln even though his belief that he is will be the subject of a later post. Perhaps Tomorrow. Actually make that later today.
