Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today or caught up in all the Inaugural Celebrations?

Asked by lovelace (204points) January 19th, 2009

We’re all excited, beyond control, about Barack Obama being elected the 44th President but I think many of us have completely forgotten who we are honoring nationally today…Martin Luther King, Jr. Which one are you doing today?

Neither. Here in Canada, as with most other countries in the world apart from the United States of America, today is just another Monday.

Neither. I am suffering at work in the 50 degree office and limited internet connectivity. They sure don’t want us in here during university holidays, do they?

wow, while you are having your most eventful day, you should take a little time to hear about him and the great man he was. not because he necessarily touched YOUR life but he was a great guy and he wanted the best for everyone. that saddens me to hear that people don’t even care but to each…
