Today, people across the United States commemorate Martin Luther King Day, a symbol of justice, equality, and unity.
Martin Luther King Jr. was a prominent leader in the American civil rights movement during the 1950s and 1960s. His tireless efforts aimed at dismantling racial segregation and promoting racial equality through nonviolent civil disobedience have left an indelible mark on history.
His famous "I Have a Dream" speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., echoes through the years as a reminder of the dream for a world where individuals are not judged by their skin color but by the content of their character.
As a school that values diversity and inclusivity, let's take a moment to reflect on the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and how they resonate with our shared values and continue to foster an environment where kindness, respect, and understanding thrive.
