Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. anniversary of his death
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed on April 4th, 1968. We must keep in mind our mission to raise children who know they should and can make a difference in our world.
“We must learn that passively to accept an unjust system is to cooperate with that system, and thereby to become a participant in its evil.” --- MLK
