"Who else exemplifies what Martin Luther King Jr. did to unite the country and seek the freedom and equity that we still need at this time?"

We've made tremendous strides in this country in fulfilling King's dream, but the work is not done. "Only light can drive out darkness. It's not a black holiday; it's a people's holiday". He also thanked local students from Ashtabula Area City Schools and Grand River Academy volunteering their time to serve at the breakfast.

Beautiful. Rep. John Lewis was Dr. King's friend, and fought alongside him during the civil rights movement.

"They were planting seeds of peace". "Have things gotten better? Yes". Owens repeated the familiar quote that those who do not learn history are destined to repeat it. Representative John Lewis, Democrat of Georgia, wrote on Twitter that "Dr. King's legacy is a guiding light". "Those difficult days, hopeful days and challenging days where we water that dream and water that vision and make it sprout into fruition", Rev. Eric Jackson said.

After the march on Martin Luther King Jr. In lieu of gifts or parties, Martin Luther King Jr. "You get a group of guys working together and I think sports is a unifier".

Dr. Jackie Thompson, an award presenter, believes the MLK Jr. holiday is more relevant today than it was back then because of the issues facing society.

Five thousand volunteers participated in dozens of service projects at the historic Girard College.

The breakfast drew a large crowd of community residents, business leaders, as well as different agencies.

"I think it's ever-important for organizations like Habitat and others to be out in the community and trying to lift it up a bit", Sutton said. "We should hope that it also serves as a day to reflect on the many civil rights battles that we are still to this day fighting in America".

There were several food vendors, bounce houses and face painters available for children to experience. Trump spent Monday's King federal holiday in Florida with no public appearances on his official schedule, but he tweeted the radio and video address to his followers. She encouraged people to get out of their comfort zones and join them. Let's keep that alive.

Congressman Steve King of Iowa has said in the past and as recently as December that diversity is not our strength. We're going to touch them and they're going to follow our example.
