Today, in honor of Martin Luther King’s birthday, school is out and though we are not spending the day in service to others (um, unless you count cooking and cleaning up after and entertaining my kids an act of service?), we are discussing King’s legacy and the civil rights movement with the kids. However you choose to acknowledge the day, whether you’re off from work or school or not, I hope you find some moments to reflect on the progress we’ve made in this county even though it hasn’t been a straight line and often feels painfully slow.
And here — since I neglected to post them on Friday — are a few things from around the web that may interest you:
The New York Times editorial board is breaking tradition by endorsing not one but two Democratic candidates for President (and they’re both women!!).
Thank you to those who submitted links for me to include. If you see something around the web you think DW readers would appreciate, please send me a link to firstname.lastname@example.org and, if it’s a fit, I’ll include it in Friday’s round-up. Thanks!
