While I enjoy a 3 day weekend as much as the next person, I am posting these words as a reminder to myself that this day is not just a day off work or a day to sell mattresses or appliances. We reserve the 3rd Monday in January to honor a man who made an undeniable impact on the landscape of America. I love this statement which is truly timeless.

“The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists, who are dedicated to justice, peace, and brotherhood. The trailblazers in human, academic, scientific, and religious freedom have always been nonconformists. In any cause that concerns the progress of mankind, put your faith in the nonconformist!”

-Martin Luther King, Jr.,

civil-rights leader (15 Jan 1929-1968)
