Happy Birthday, Dr. King!

January 17, 2020

When we lit the peace candle today at "Happy Birthday, Dr King" All School assembly we introduced three videos that tell the story of his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.

"For the peace candle today we will watch the single most famous and most celebrated recorded speech in American history.  The man who spoke it, who created it, is celebrated every year with his own national holiday to honor his birthday.  Thank you, Rev Dr Martin Luther King JR for being born, and for changing our world forever. Let Dr. King's brilliance wash over you.  Get comfortable and settle in.  Allow his words to make a mark on you even if you don't understand everything he says.  Try to notice what you think you understand.  And take something from it.”  Here are the links for you to watch:

And Send it Into the World.  A very peaceful MLK Day to you all.  

In Solidarity,
