MLK Day+ Party =Honor?
I was listening to the radio while driving on my way home and heard a commercial for a party at a local club to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day this weekend. The first thing that came out f my mouth was ,"What?". Who thought of this? Is this a good way to honor his memory? I might not have such a problem with it if they have persons attending the event bring a can good or a portion of the profits went to a local charity. How is this party celebrating Dr. King and all of his work? It seems to me that, someone just made up a reason to have a party. I think that there are other ways to honor Dr. King, like volunteering, marching a local MLK walk or attending one of the many Dr. King programs in your city. I am not sure Dr. King would be happy with people tipping a bottle in honor of him. Maybe I am over reacting, but I find it kinda of rude and disrespectful. Maybe I am just being sensitive, but I do not like it one bit. Whatever way you decide to honor Dr. King this weekend, please remember all of his work, his struggles and his accomplishments. Have a good weekend!!
