Every year I am asked by many the following question. What is it about this day that we need to celebrate?
Up until last year, I actually misunderstood the meaning behind this holiday dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr.
I originally thought that this holiday was a day to recognize a dream towards equality.
Through my research, I learned that this day did not become a federal holiday until November 3, 1983 when former President Ronald Reagan singed the Holiday Bill establishing the 3rd Monday of January as Marting Luther King, Jr a National Holiday. Although it was signed in 1983, official celebration did not being until 1986.
Martin Luther King Day is more than acknowledging the fight against inequalities. Ultimately, this holiday is dedicated to nonviolence and all those who endured violence passively to unify humanity.
