Today is the national holiday of Martin Luther King Day, but this is one of those peculiar holidays where it seems out of place to say "Happy MLK Day." Why?
I think it's because he was a martyr whose life was dedicated to but also sacrificed for the truest of American ideals that all people are created equal.
I think it's because his battle continues. Prejudice seems more acceptable today than I can ever remember. There are changes taking place, however. I hope that this renewed prejudice is the last gasp of a dying hatred.
I am proud that it is REVEREND MLK. I am proud that his faith inspired his activism, idealism and pacifism. I am proud that he saw church in worship within sanctuaries, and also in the streets where there was no sanctuary.
"Happy" or not, let us honour Martin Luther King Day as something much more than a three-day weekend.
Faith, love and chitchat.
