Day of Service


Monday, January 21, is Martin Luther King Day.  This year, MLK Day commemorations will coincide with President Obama’s second inauguration; Dr. King’s bible will be used at President Obama’s public swearing-in ceremony. There are some similarities between the two, Dr. King and President Obama both received the Nobel Peace Prize, and Dr. King always stressed doing for others, he once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” Similarly, President Obama has been deeply involved in encouraging more Americans to pledge a commitment to serve others.
