Martin Luther King Day is usually recognized as a day of service, but this year it is also symbolic. An African-American man was inaugurated as president on the day honoring a man who lived and died for equal rights in this country. In essence, if it weren't for MLK and the civil rights movement, someone like Barack Obama would not have the opportunity to be president. Regardless of political affiliation or views, it is a historic day. What do you think this means?
