Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a Great Time to Volunteer

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today we celebrate the legacy of Dr. King. One great way to spend Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is to volunteer for your neighbors and communities. Find ideas here: volunteeriowa.org.

“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., right, visits at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Arend Lubbers in Pella, Iowa before addressing an audience of about 1,300 students at Central College. With the civil rights leader, from left, are Iowa Methodist Bishop and Mrs. James Thomas of Des Moines and Central College President and Mrs. Lubbers. Dr. King is en route to Chicago to resume his rights campaign there.”  REGISTER ACHIVE PHOTO

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!| fotograf nunta http://madvideo.ro/fotograf-de-nunta/
