One of my favorite reasons for MLK Day - Donald gets the day off. Three day weekend - WOOHOO! But, in anticipation for tomorrow, and in general thinking more about this man - I am so happy that we set aside a day for rememberance of his life. He truly was a great man. He stood for beautiful principles and served a loving God - I believe he truly loved people.

A paragraph from one of his sermons, I found it really interesting and poignant.

"You have allowed the material means by which you live to outdistance the spiritual ends for which you live. You have allowed your mentality to outrun your morality. You have allowed your civilization to outdistance your culture. Through your scientific genius you have made of the world a neighborhood, but through your moral and spiritual genius you have failed to make of it a brotherhood."

Oh the fun of one year ago, a truly great weekend:
