martin luther king jr.

It’s MLK day! And it turns out there is more to be happy about than a three day weekend. The man behind the holiday is one of the most phenomenal people of the previous century. I don’t feel like I have the words or prestige to even talk about this hombre bueno. I admire him so much for his bravery, his revolution, his legacy.

I really like to remember this day by watching his I Have a Dream Speech. It gives me the willies and the goosebumps down my spine. I like to do this eating chicken wings. Kang and Wangs (my friend Julia’s most oustanding birthday theme party). This song came up on my iTunes, and I don’t know if meager people like myself are allowed to dedicate songs to Martin Luther King Jr, but that’s what I want to do today.
But first in his own perfect words-

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

So by damn, gimme some lovin. And no we haven’t made it, but we’re making it.
