“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?” –Martin Luther King, Jr.
Each year, on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, we honor the legacy of a man who taught our country and the world so much about the importance of humanity coming together to overcome social and global problems. What better way to celebrate the work of Dr. King than by dedicating the day to service?
In 1994, Congress declared the third Monday in January to be the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service-- asking all Americans to join together on this day to attend to some of our greatest challenges. This year, do your part to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King and help in your community! You can find a local Day of Service project or create your own.
As you spend the day dedicating your time to public service, remember the words of Dr. King, who said it best:
“The time is always right to do what is right.”
