So today, is not just a day off from work (for those who are off today), but a day set aside to remember the efforts of one man who had a vision.
Here is a video clip showing images from Dr. King's life and the unity of men and women of various backgrounds to bring about a change in society. In the background you will hear Stevie Wonder's "Happy Birthday" song. To view the lyrics, click here.
In addition, below is the animated movie "Our Friend Martin". It's about 1 hour long. It's a great movie to watch with your children, but the teacher in me always suggests previewing first and discuss, discuss, discuss because the true value will only be obtained through the discussion. Otherwise (for children), it's just like watching another cartoon. :-)
