Today is Martin Luther King day and I love Martin Luther King day for two reasons. One, I love Martin Luther King. Back in my research paper writing days (Research papers were my favorite period.), I wrote my paper about Martin Luther King several times. Probably at least three times. I loved his passion which made him very inspirational for me. It always made me upset that he died, but if you’re going to die anyways, the way to do it is by fighting for something you believe in.
The other reason is a bit shallow, but still true. I also love Martin Luther King day because it gives me a ‘get out of jail free’ card. By jail I mean, school and by free I mean, I don’t go and it doesn’t effect my grade. Today, I spent my time going and collecting materials for my crafts. I actually completed two of them and started another. I made a record clock, an owl out of jar lids, and I started a bottle cap clock. And I went to the gym and I read part of a book that my friend has been begging me to read. Bottom line, I love Martin Luther King day.
In honor of Martin Luther King: Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
It’s one of my many favorite quotes by him, but this pretty much sums up everything I believe.
