Take the challenge of ‘a day on’

By April Smith Monday, Jan. 21, 2013 is the day on which we celebrate the birth and life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Although this is a day ‘off,’ think of it as a day ‘on.’ A day on which we reflect on Dr. King’s legacy and work to keep the dream alive; a day on which our hearts and souls truly accept others as they as are; a day on which we teach our children of the past to avoid their making the same mistakes in the future; a day on which we make a commitment to Dr. King’s dreams and ideals; a day on which we encourage others to do the same. I challenge you to use your ‘day on’ to further the dream of Dr. King and move on to make America a better nation. Let us have new attitudes and responses to meet the new situations of today. The community is invited to join the celebration, starting with the parade at 9 a.m. from the E.P. Roberts Center. Individuals may participate with floats or cars or by marching to the courthouse for a short program honoring Dr. King. The parade will then return to Roberts Center for more activities and refreshments sponsored by the Dewaine T. Bell Difference Makers Inc. Remember, act and celebrate a day on, not a day off. Information is at 770-358-3311.
