Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spent his life in service to our nation. Now it’s up to us to carry on his legacy.

Even decades after his death, his contributions to our country need to continue through us. Yesterday’s national holiday has evolved into a day of service, not just a day off work, which is a fitting legacy for a man who worked selflessly for the betterment of all Americans. But why should we stop at one day? We should spend this entire week reflecting on where we are and where we need to go to make sure King’s dreams really do come true.
