Martin Luther King’s Day is celebrated on the 3rd Monday of January every year.

When you consider the life of Martin Luther King Jr., you feel inspired to live a life making the world a better place… to push for a world that honors love, justice and equality. He’s a real role model for children and adults alike.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in a inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.”
