51kj6kPHswL._SL160_On October 14, 1964, Martin Luther King, Jr. won the Nobel Peace Prize. He was the youngest man to ever receive it. He was just 35 years old and so committed to his cause that he donated the prize money of over $50,000. to the civil rights movement. His protests and his “I Have a Dream” speech are world famous and his accomplishments still are celebrated today.
In his honor, on October 14th this year, start planning what you and your family may do to promote King’s values on January 19, 2015. It is the Martin Luther King Day of Service.
Each year I plan to mentor students in my community that experience challenges in school. It’s a service that I enjoy very much!
