Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. in the United States. It’s a nationally recognized holiday to remember a man who did as much as anyone to promote a vision of America where all people are considered equal.
When I was in high school, I had a math teacher, Mr. McVeety, who asked the students not to just view the day as a day when we didn’t have to go to school, but to spend time reflecting on MLK - his life and his legacy, to read his speeches, etc.
I’ve never forgotten Mr. McVeety’s appeal, though admittedly, I’ve not made the time as often as I would have liked. As with many things, the best time to have started was yesterday. The next best time is today.
