Martin Luther King, Jr Day

Thank you Dr. King.

The US actually remembers a man of peace one day a year. Most of our national holidays are focused on wars and people who led in war or served in war. But this is a day to focus on making change through peace.

One of the cool things about the day is that NPR and other folks (including the King Center I linked above) are playing recordings of King speaking. That man had a great voice and oratorial style, eh?

Wouldn't you love to have recordings of Lincoln? Jefferson? Elizabeth I? (Okay, so I tried to sneak one in!)

  1. Makes me wonder whether people 50 years from now will be as horrified by Bush's voice and oratory style (if you can even call it that) as I am.
