MLK, Jr. Day
Please take a couple of moments and reflect where we have come from, where we are, and where we need to go. Whether you have today off or not, whether you live in the U.S.A. or not, we should all work towards his dream. Thanks.

Good Call. We've come a long way, baby, but it's come at a steep price for many.

That doesn't mean it's "over", but we have come a long, long way as a nation. I think MLK would be proud.
