On the Occasion of Dr. King's Birth

This is again not a new picture, but it's one I felt was quite appropriate to post on Dr. King's birthday. Congressman John Lewis was deeply involved in the Civil Rights Movement, participated in the "Freedom Rides" of the 1960s, was at the head of the line on the march across the Pettus Bridge in Selma -- and is a man for whom I have a great deal of respect and admiration. Politically, we come from different sides of the aisle, but in terms of his activism there is no finer individual. (This picture was taken just after he had been a guest on my former boss' television show; not one of my better hair days!)

I was just writing about my MLK day here with the students that I mentor. I am glad to see someone else was thinking about too.

I left a few words out of that last sentence :)...I am glad to see someone else was thinking about him today too.
