For Today

I have some good friends, some great friends and some personal heroes in Washington, D.C. today marking the anniversary of the incredible event that was the March on Washington.  My Aunt Jo was a school principal for a while in a part of Ohio that’s not very diverse (any part except Dayton, I guess, would be a proxy).  Once, when decorating the school bulletin board for Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, a student came up to her with nothing but curiosity in his head and said, “Wow, you people really like that man, don’t you?”

That happened in the last decade.  While there is no doubt and no arguing that the words uttered that day by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. were tremendous, he was so much more than that speech. He was a man that, yes, us people really did like, and that many more could learn from.
