To all friends and loved ones: Happy Martin Luther King Day!
Only roughly 50% of businesses were closed today. I see that as progress: I didn't even realize there were that many!
I have mixed feelings about Martin Luther King. For more on that, read my article last year. I would prefer this to be a holiday celebrating the ending of segregation, instead of naming it after one man only, when there were so many who were part of the movement.
However, we celebrate what MLK stands for, with the hopes that some day complete equality will be enjoyed by all of us.
