Today, we honor...

Despite not being in session today in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we still take time to reflect on the many wonderful things Dr. King, Jr. did for our country. His many words of wisdom still guide us today and are so important to our students:

"If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward."

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?"

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character -- that is the goal of true education."

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

And, arguably his most well-known words...

"I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
