Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service – January 16, 2012
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. devoted his life to equality, social justice, economic advancement, and opportunity for all. He challenged us to build a more perfect union and taught us that everyone has a role to play in making America what it ought to be. With his leadership, our nation made great strides against racial discrimination and toward increased civil rights.
More than 40 years after his death, Dr. King’s example can continue to guide us in addressing our nation’s most critical issues today. Each of us can contribute to strengthening our own communities by serving in Dr. King’s honor on the King Holiday and throughout the year. And, by making service part of our daily lives, we can help realize Dr. King’s dream. Together we can work to create opportunities for Americans to strengthen economic opportunity, ensure that more young people graduate from high school; that American’s of all ages have healthier futures; and support our military families and veterans.
