Live Out the Dream

Peter's Publisher would like to wish you a warm Martin Luther King Jr. Day from Washington, D.C.

A monument to Dr. King will be dedicated this August in this very city, but there is still justice to be done. The ideals of this great leader, from stopping war to providing for the needy, have yet to be fulfilled in this country.

I love Martin Luther King Jr. Day; it's one of my favorites of the year, and it is my opinion that Dr. King is one of the greatest, most inspiring and most important figures in American history. For that reason alone he should be honored. An even greater reason, however, is that he articulated and embodied the values and ideas for which I believe our country must continue to strive.

This is what we often forget: The dream still needs to be lived out.
