Remembering Martin Luther King Jr.

Following our conversation with Sarah tonight, who asked about Martin Luther King Jr. she asked to decorate this picture in his memory and to share with her friends at school tomorrow. I asked her if I could share with you, and she proudly agreed.

It's moments like this that are learning opportunities to educate our children on history.  It matters for us to share Martin Luther King Jr.'s life and legacy with our children; however young they are, to keep his memory, commitment and dedication alive to pave the way for equality.

In memory of Martin Luther King Jr.

In addition, here are some Haiku I wrote to commemorate this incredible human being who was loved by many and inspiration.

Strength and endurance
Never giving up the fight
Standing for the cause

Martin Luther King
Courageous and powerful
Inspired nation

Making an impact
On the world we live today
For equality

Man of many words
Who had a fighting spirit
Big voice, equal rights
