MLK Day March from Garfield High School to the Federal Building, Monday, Jan. 16, 2017 (“John Lewis is a Hero”)
I joined the MLK, Jr. March from Garfield High School on this crisp but bright winter day. There seemed to be a spirit of defiance as well as uncertainty in the air, on the eve of an unexpected and unfathomable Presidential inauguration.
Now more than ever it is important to remember Dr. King’s lessons and legacy in our ongoing struggle as a nation to achieve social justice and equality.
In many ways, those lessons begin with education. We must teach our children well.
