Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Aside from it being a day without school for the kids nor postal delivery, MLK Jr. day justly celebrates the life of an important American.

Dr. King was, without a doubt, a force for good in America by moving, along with many others, the Civil Rights struggle forward and helping to right some glaring injustices in America and to increase liberty for all.

That King had personal foibles that detractors may point out does not take away from his heroism or achievement, in fact they point more to his greatness in accomplishment in spite of his flaws. In America you don't have to be perfect to be a hero and your results matter, not minor mistakes you make on your path.

As a nation and as individuals, we're certainly much better off due to his heroism, good work and sacrifice, and we're all freer as a result.
