Not only is Monday Martin Luther King Jr. Day, it has also been made into the National Day of Service, to represent and continue to honor the passion Dr. King had for service for others and his social conscience. His life’s work was about service to others — especially those who had no voice in the halls of power and who struggled to emerge from poverty and despair.
In an attempt to remember him and the heart he had for loving others, Monday’s National Day of Service is a day for individuals and larger communities together to volunteer in a number of ways; serving meals, collecting food and clothing, helping military families, sprucing up public schools and so on.
