honoring mlk, jr.

Recently on the Expats in Italy Forum, Joanna, a fellow American living in Italy posted a link through which we can keep track of what our senators and representatives are up to in Washington. Quite coincidentally, I came across this quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today:

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

It’s easy for those of us in Italy to forget that today back in the States is MLK, Jr. Day. I hope everyone will take a moment and remember all that Dr. King did and dreamed for our country and for the world; I believe that one of the best ways we can honor his memory is to let our politicians know when they’re not listening to us.

What are your senators and representatives doing?
