What does MLK day really mean? An opportunity for politicians to show some extremely tenuous link to the man? An opportunity to reflect on all that is wrong in the world or perhaps even a chance to criticize the man himself and all his faults of which he had many!
For me it was an opportunity to reflect on the goodness we can achieve in life if we choose to do so. Someone post the picture below of a police dog that was placed in a police car to intimidate Dr King but instead the dog cuddled up to him, presumably recognizing a good and kind man rather than a villain! It’s an important image. I’d hope that dogs, who are considered a good judge of character, would see me as kind and someone they can trust. How would you would you like to be seen by a pup?
