    Just wanted to wish everyone a great day in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior! Anyone doing any deeds today like picking up trash or giving to a charity? I am, I do this every yer with friends. Anyways, enjoy the day and remember who it's for!

    We have our trash pickup in honor of MLK next weekend actually. Using the day to clean house! I always watch a movie about MLK with the kids though, and read my youngest a book about him.

    A local non profit that I support is having an open house and a talk on social justice in our community, so I may try and make it to that. Hope everyone has a wonderful day what ever they do for it!

    Well, I put my trash out, so that they could pick it up, but I guess the garbage men were celebrating MLK day, some other way.

    I posted on my Facebook about him, and meditated in thanks for his great influence and work.

    But I am curious, what is the reference to litter and trash regarding him?

    I love living in New Hampshire, but have always been ashamed that we were like the last state to observe MLK Day. Our motto is "Live Free or Die" for God's sake.... hello!!!
