Happy (belated) Birthday Dr. King


Since this blog most definitely celebrates all aspects of life here in the sweet south, I’d be remiss if I didn’t dedicate today’s post to one of our own. During a time when the south wasn’t a very kind place, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. fought tirelessly to change things and in honoring him, I hope we can also continue to keep his dreams alive.


  1. He really did so much for all of us, in opening our world and exposing some of the meaness we had stored up!

  2. I usually do a quick lesson on MLK Jr. so that the kids will know who he was and what he meant to American history. Here's the sad thing: I've had several students tell me he was a President when I ask them if they know who he is.

  3. This world needs all the reminders of kindness and equality we can give it! AMEN!

    Have you read The Help? I couldn't put it down!

    Happy Martin Luther King Day!


Lay it on me y'all!
