It was yesterday (January 19 as 3rd Monday of the month) that we honor the 24th Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (it was first observed on January 1986 though it was first observed by all 50 states by year 2000). As what we have know, he was a preacher or a clergy man who was fighting for the equal civil rights of every people in the community of the United States of America. He was an African-American clergyman who advocated social change through non-violent means. A powerful speaker and a man of great spiritual strength, he shaped the American civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. And today, is the continued patronage for him for this is one of what he likes to have, I mean what he's fighting for that makes him a famous and an honorable person- exercising civil rights as I have said earlier. That everybody irregardless of race, skin/color, sex, religion/religious creed, national origin, ancestry, marital status, etc. shall receive an equal treatment and consideration (look in Wikipedia for more information). Today following yesterday is the Inauguration of the 44th President and the First American-African President. This is really history. And the soon-to-be inaugurated is making a history too (as he is the First African-American President). So, kudos Martin Luther King, Jr.! We are one as a nation and everybody is involve not only black and white but everybody.
