Moments before the day ends, I thought it might be good to mention that Reese was learning about Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday last week. Today is the day we, as a nation, celebrate him. Being only five years old, Reese's understanding was that MLK learned about what Jesus had taught all his life. So, MLK understood that he wanted to change the rules so that kids like Reese could be friends with whoever they wanted to be.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed:We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
