The late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a martyr who
dedicated his life - and ultimately gave his life - to fulfill-
ing his dream of racial equality and understanding among all
people. It is therefore only fitting that we honor his legacy
through remembrance, activism and a continued commitment
to making King's dream a reality.
Most importantly, however, we must not focus on Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as the sole time for honoring this
great man and reflecting on how each of us may contribute to
the fight for racial justice. King didn't pursue his dream only .
one day a year, but every single day of his life. If we are ever
to live as this American hero wished us to, we must continue
in the pathway he laid out for us second after second, day
