Martin Luther King, Jr.: “I Have a Dream.”

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

Wikipedia tells us that: “The campaign for a federal holiday in King’s honor began soon after his assassination in 1968. President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed three years later.”

So, this Monday we will be celebrating 32* years of MLK Day, a good reminder that we all have dreams, as he did, and we need to fuel those positive dreams into action, as he did.

*And 35 years since the signing of MLK Day into law. Thanx to classmate PAula for catching my error (31 instead of 32 years.)

I clearly remember the day he was assassinated. The 60s were a violent time, with the assassination of Medgar Evers, Pres. John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Considering the peace movement of the 1960s, this decade was not peaceful!

MLK is definitely a powerful historical figure and a role model for all of us who seek peace, whatever our race, creed or color or how difficult the uphill climb to peace may be.

Take a few moments tomorrow to honor King, as well as the other leaders who died in the 1960s.

Holiday Time

Sunday, December 24th, 2017

This is the time of year when you can wish a person Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwaanza, Happy Solstice, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, etc.

Since I am  not sure which of these celebrations you embrace, I wish you a Happy Holiday Season and a joyous New Year. I plan to keep posting til the end of December and into January, since my holiday of Hanukkah is over and I have much info still sitting on my table next to the computer.

The message from the giraffe, my favorite non-domestic animal, is:

Happy Holidays! May your low hanging fruit always be within reach!
