TidBits: With the famous words “I Have a Dream”, we will be celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on the 15th, which is always the 3rd Monday of January. It celebrates the life and achievements of Martin Luther King, Jr. an influential American civil rights leader. He exposed the brutality of discriminatory laws and institutional racism. He served a greater good. His purpose was to remove the burden of oppression. He reminded us about the importance of “content of character.” His own words are most suited for the moment: “We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.”
