My MLK Day Service Project

I thought that the best way to honor Dr. King's memory at least for me today would be to point out some of the best links on the web that can help you gain a greater understanding of this great man's mission to make the world a better place for everyone. It is continually argued that his "dream" has turned into more rhetoric than reality, but there has been a lot of progress made. African Americans have been able to achieve greater gains in education, able to buy homes, own businesses, and make a positive entry into a middle-class lifestyle. While there is still more that can be done, the most important thing to keep in mind is that any progress made is a reflection of the collective efforts of communities, faiths, and all races, not just one individual person.
