Today’s Special Occasion: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

It's January 20, and today the United States is observing the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  As we've said many times before in this blog, one way to make history come alive is to visit museums, libraries or other historic sites.  If you're in Atlanta, you can visit the King Center to learn more about Dr. King.  If you can't make it to Atlanta, many people do service projects today to commemorate Dr. King's life, and you can learn more about these by visiting the United States Government's official site.
