“He who is greatest among you shall be a servant. That’s the new definition of greatness. …” –Martin Luther King, Jr.

So. You’re off from school today. Do you know why? Really..?

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a passionate and tireless Civil Rights activist. He dedicated his life helping Blacks who were being economically oppressed and socially discriminated against. Countless others benefited from his work and sacrifices as well. He worked to ensure equal opportunity, freedom, and justice for all.

Dr. King was assassinated on April 4, 1968. He was 39 years old.

“I encourage every American to observe this holiday in honor of Dr. King’s selfless legacy by volunteering in their own communities and by dedicating time each day to bettering the lives of those around us.” –President Barack Obama

What can you do today to be of service to another person? Is there anyone right on your street in your neighborhood, perhaps even a school or classmate you know or know about that you can reach out to?

Need inspiration?  Take a look at the video Youth Helping Others:

<p><a href=”″>Youth Helping Others</a> from <a href=”″>MLK Day</a> on <a href=””>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>See how other kids are answering the call to service, which I can highly recommend, btw. BOL!

Martin Luther King, Jr.  or MLK Day. More than just a day off.  It’s our annual, national call to service. Make service a habit.

“Ask not what your country can do for you.  Ask what you can do for your country.”–  John F. Kennedy

What can you do today?
