Today is not just a holiday, it's Martin Luther King day

I think many Americans don't really know what today really is, other than just another holiday. Today is Martin Luther King day and he should be honored by everyone for what he did in his life.

"Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., minister, civil rights leader, intellectual, social reformer, author, recipient of countless accolades and awards, winner of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize, parent, and charismatic leader seeking peace in the volatile social transformation taking place in America during the 1950's and 1960's - was suddenly taken from this earth at the hands of an assassin's bullet on April 4, 1968. This solitary man, within a span of thirteen years, did something that changed the way America viewed and treated a portion of its citizens, who were historically faced with racist, restrictive laws as part of their daily living. (A Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)"
